Corners Barriers and Corridors
David Zwirner is pleased to present an exhibition of significant "corner," "barrier" and "corridor" works from the late 1960s and early 1970s by Dan Flavin, on view at 537 West 20th Street in New York.
From 1963, when he conceived the diagonal of May 25, 1963 (to Constantin Brancusi), a single gold, fluorescent lamp installed diagonally on a wall, until his death in 1996, Flavin produced a singularly consistent and prodigious body of work that utilized commercially available fluorescent lamps to create installations (or "situations," as he preferred to call them) of light and color.

Presenting Dan Flavin’s “corner,” “barrier,” and “corridor” works, many of which are reproduced for the first time in plates that accurately capture their colors, this publication explores the artist’s core sculptural vocabulary and how his use of fluorescent light forged a new relationship between the art object and its surrounding architecture. The book includes texts by Michael Auping and Alexandra Whitney. Published by David Zwirner Books.
