Dan Flavin

untitled, 1996

Overview

Dan Flavin’s untitled (1996) is a site-specific work installed in the two stairwells of 548 West 22nd Street, New York. The lights can be seen both within the building and from the street, and the installation exemplifies Flavin’s subtle work in relation to a specific architectural context. Completed just prior to the artist’s death, it is Flavin’s last work in fluorescent light.
