Dan Flavin: A Retrospective - Los Angeles County Museum (LACMA)

To accompany the first comprehensive retrospective exhibition of light artist Dan Flavin's work, LACMA presents a number of Web features, including several essays and articles remembering Flavin (1933 - 1996), by Jay Belloli and Michael Govan. There is also a video interview of Flavin, "Dan Flavin . . . in daylight and cool white" where he says that thinking about light is his art, and he in fact once turned down the Skowhegan Medal for sculpture, since he did not regard himself as a sculptor. There is also a lengthy slideshow covering the works in the retrospective, with examples of the main types of Flavin's works: Corners, Monuments, Circular fixtures and Barriers; and a recreation of Flavin's first exhibition of artwork made from fluorescent lights, held at the Green Gallery in New York City, in 1964.
