Recalling Flavin

The Diagonal of May 25, 1963 (to Constantin Brancusi) 1963
Yellow fluorescent light, 8ft. long on the diagonal.


As a huge Dan Flavin fan, I was elated to see this little tidbit in the NYT:
Dan Flavin, the minimalist sculptor who died in 1996, spent his life producing graceful light sculptures. But what happens when a bulb breaks? And how easy are they for collectors to install?

The Chelsea dealer David Zwirner has just begun to represent the artist’s estate. On Friday he is starting a Web site (davidzwirner.com/danflavin) that is intended as a practical resource for Flavin aficionados, covering issues of conservation and installation as well as the artist’s exhibition history and examples of his work.
For more information, here is the link to Zwirner's site.
