Dia : Beacon – Robert Irwin

The Dia : Beacon is one of my favorite institutions because of their commitment to site-specific large scale installations, the spectacular gallery space, and the serene setting.

Dan Flavin’s works are perfectly held in zig zag walls and enclaves that allow his work to glow with intensity and brightness.

Famous Richard Serra Torqued Ellipses envelope you in a perfect balance of dark and light, warm and cold, silent and peaceful, calm and hopeful.

This summer’s temporary exhibition is Robert Irwin’s Homage to the Square, almost a hybrid dedication to Dan Flavin with the florescent tubes and Joseph Albers colour patterns.
