Dan Flavin at Dia Bridgehampton

Dan Flavin at Dia Bridgehampton

Few artists are more identified with a particular medium than Dan Flavin. Since 1963, Flavin’s work was composed almost entirely of light in the form of commercially available fluorescent tubes in ten colors and five shapes.

Established by Dia Art Foundation in 1983, Dia Bridgehampton was designed by Dan Flavin to permanently house an installation of his work alongside a program of temporary exhibitions. With Dia’s support, Flavin renovated a turn-of-the-century Shingle-style firehouse, then church, converting its vestibule and second floor into a permanent display of his signature works in fluorescent light. Today, Dia continues to maintain Flavin’s permanent installation of nine works in fluorescent light, the Dan Flavin Art Institute, and to present yearly exhibitions in the first-floor gallery.

Dia Art Foundation is pleased to share this short film highlighting Dan Flavin's works in celebration of our 50th anniversary
