Published by The Chinati Foundation.
Edited by Rob Weiner. Introduction by Jenny Moore. Text by Matthew Simms, Marianne Stockebrand, Adrian Kohn. Photography by Alex Marks.

Robert Irwin: Untitled (Dawn to Dusk) is a new publication devoted to the titular work by the legendary San Diego–based light and space artist Robert Irwin (born 1928), the most recent addition to the Chinati Foundation’s permanent collection. The artwork was inaugurated in July 2016 after 17 years of planning. Irwin’s building-cum-artwork is a career-defining summation of his pioneering art and fulfills a longstanding intention of Chinati founder Donald Judd to include a work by Irwin alongside the renowned collection of permanent installations in Marfa, Texas.
Robert Irwin: Untitled (Dawn to Dusk) presents and contextualizes Irwin’s artwork through a photographic record of the installation over the course of one year, in addition to critical essays, drawings, plans and illustrations. The publication provides a comprehensive history of the project, describing Irwin’s friendship with Donald Judd and Judd’s support of his work, Chinati’s invitation to the artist in 1999 and the evolution of Irwin’s concept as he visited the site and developed the design for the project.
Photography by Alex Marks document the Irwin project and the effect that the changing seasons and times of day have on the experience of the work.

Robert Irwin: Primaries and SecondariesRobert Irwin: Primaries and Secondaries

Published by Museum of Contemporary Art, San Diego.
Edited by Sherri Schottlaender. Text by Robert Irwin, Hugh M. Davies.

A pivotal influence in contemporary art, Robert Irwin's work investigates perception and phenomenological experience through sculptural and installation works that engage directly with a location's physical conditions. In the late 1960s, Irwin's early pieces helped to define the aesthetics of the West Coast Light and Space movement. In 1970, Irwin abandoned his studio-based art and stripped away all of his conceptions about art-making, until only those two criteria truly did remain: light and space. By the 1980s, he had evolved guidelines for how a site-based art could proceed, and, in a seminal 1986 statement, he laid out approaches for "site dominant," "site adjusted," "site specific" or "site conditioned" art--terms that are still essential today. Robert Irwin: Primaries and Secondaries spans five decades of the artist's work. Produced to accompany the largest exhibition of Irwin's work since 1993, it includes five of his most recent installation works, four of which were created specifically for MCASD--and features a DVD documentary of the exhibition installation, plus five essays from the artist's distinguished theoretical output.
