Abbi brings her friend the hilarious essayist Samantha Irby to MoMA PS1 to see one of the trippiest works they’ve ever experienced: “Meeting” by James Turrell. Turrell’s work is immersive, mind-blowing, deeply moving -- and made entirely of light. Turns out, light can really mess with your eyes! And that’s what artists like Turrell and Dan Flavin, are all about.

Also featuring: Peter Eleey and Flavin Judd
