John Chamberlain: It Ain’t Cheap

January 12, 2013–April 27, 2014, Dia Bridgehampton


The Dan Flavin Art Institute will open 2013 with the special exhibition, John Chamberlain: It Ain’t Cheap. The exhibition, which presents six of the artist’s rarely exhibited metal paintings from 1965, as well as a sculpture titled It Ain’t Cheap from the same year, will be on view from January 12, 2013 – April 27, 2014. These works are from a series of 12-inch-square paintings that were presented at Leo Castelli Gallery in January 1965 in a solo exhibition titled Paintings done in auto lacquer and metal flake on formica. Dia presented an exhibition of work by John Chamberlain at The Dan Flavin Art Institute in 2007.
