Dan Flavin

Works from the 1960s

Zwirner & Wirth will open the fall season with an exhibition comprised of six Dan Flavin fluorescent light sculptures from the 1960s from a private European collection.

It was in 1961 that Flavin began working with electric light and over the next three years he created a series of electrical works he termed "icons". The "icons" were, simply, flat painted pieces of masonite with electrical features mounted on the edges, however it was here that Flavin began to explore the possibilities of colored light and its relationship to the architectural surroundings.
