Dan Flavin : Series and Progressions

description

Exhibition catalogue published following show held at David Zwirner, New York, November 5 - December 19, 2009 curated by Tiffany Bell. Texts by Tiffany Bell, Alexandra Whitney, Richard Shiff, Anne Rorimer, Dan Graham, and Dan Flavin. "This publication examines Flavin’s use of progressions and serial structures, ideas that were central to the artist’s practice throughout his career. Flavin has been credited (by Mel Bochner) with being 'one of the first artists to make use of a basically progressional procedure,' and the systematic arrangement of color and light was an aspect of his work that not only led to it being characterized as Minimal art but which moreover influenced Conceptual artistic practices. The catalogue will feature a selection of exemplary work by the artist, ranging in date from 1963 to 1990." -- publisher's statement. Includes numerous color installation images, checklist of works, selected exhibition history and bibliography, and a full facsimile of "Dan Flavin: pink and gold," the original catalogue from the exhibition "Dan Flavin: alternating pink and 'gold,'" presented at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago, 1967-68.
