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 this 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. A resident of nearby Wainscott, Flavin envisioned that the first floor would be both a venue for changing exhibitions and a print shop. 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 by artists primarily residing or working on Long Island in the first-floor gallery.
