Established in 1983 as a permanent installation of Flavin’s work, this renovated firehouse holds a permanent installation of nine works in fluorescent light created by the artist between 1963 and 1981, and a gallery for changing exhibitions. Planned by the artist for the second-floor gallery of the space, the permanent installation traces Flavin’s practice from 1963—when he decided to work solely with standard fluorescent fixtures and tubes—to 1983, when the presentation was realized. In creating this exhibition, Flavin conceived of the sculptures and the architecture as a single, unified installation. By manipulating the formal, phenomenal, and referential characteristics of light, the installation asks viewers to consider a series of contrasts—between colors, intensities of light, structure and formlessness, the obvious and the mysterious, and the serious and the humorous.

We sat down with RM to talk about the impact Dia Beacon had on him, and why it was his dream to shoot a performance video in our galleries:

In December 2021, RM visited Dia Beacon for the first time. We admire how he embraces his role as an arts supporter, and the work he has done to introduce younger, global audiences to art. We are excited to partner with RM, and hope you enjoy seeing @DiaArtFndn through his eyes.
