DAVID ZWIRNER BOOKS

Dan Flavin: Corners, Barriers and Corridors

Text by Michael Auping. Contributions by Alexandra Whitney.

Featured image is reproduced from 'Dan Flavin: Corners, Barriers and Corridors.'Published on the occasion of the eponymous exhibition at David Zwirner in 2015, Corners, Barriers and Corridors takes as its point of departure Dan Flavin’s (1933–96) influential corners, barriers and corridors in fluorescent light from Dan Flavin show, presented at the Saint Louis Art Museum in 1973. The volume brings questions of architecture to the fore, exploring how this particular body of light works function in space.
Mining early explorations in Flavin’s practice, the book includes many works reproduced for the first time in plates that accurately capture their colors. Above all, the photography reveals the unexpected and powerful interplay between the light of Flavin’s constructions and the surrounding space; these works not only function as color experiments but as structural explorations in light.
This catalogue presents an especially significant body of work, along with new scholarship by Michael Auping, offering a vital historical perspective on Flavin’s practice.

From 1963, when he conceived the diagonal of May 25, 1963 (to Constantin Brancusi), a single gold, fluorescent lamp that is installed on a diagonal on the wall—a work which marks the artist’s first use of fluorescent light alone, until his death in 1996, Dan Flavin (1933-1996) 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. Through the construction of light, Flavin was able to literally establish and redefine space.

Michael Auping is chief curator at the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth in Texas.

Alexandra Whitney is Director of Research and Exhibitions at David Zwirner.

PRAISE AND REVIEWS

New York Magazine

Catie L'Heureux

Using everyday fluorescent lamps, the late conceptual artist Dan Flavin created sculptures that transformed the architecture of rooms and challenged notions of space.

W Magazine

Stephanie Eckardt

what ended up being Flavin's penultimate work just before the artist's death that same year. Two decades later, though, the red and white lights seem to be burning just as bright.
