In conjunction with Robert Irwin: Scrim veil—Black rectangle—Natural light, Whitney Museum of American Art, New York (1977), writer Lawrence Weschler reflects on the life and work of the artist he has described as one of the “most interestingly and fruitfully contradictory figures on the art scene today.” Weschler is author of Seeing Is Forgetting the Name of the Thing One Sees: Over Thirty Years of Conversations with Robert Irwin and contributor to The New Yorker.
