Dan Flavin: 1964 Green Gallery Exhibition

Examining the early work of Dan Flavin, the 1964 Green Gallery Exhibition looks at the work shown at the short lived Green Gallery. Here’s a little something from the blurb:

“The Green Gallery show was the first exhibition in which the artist presented only fluorescent light pieces, and it included such important works as the diagonal of May 25, 1963 (to Robert Rosenblum), 1963; a primary picture, 1964; and the nominal three (to William of Ockham), 1963. It marked the development of the language of illumination that would characterize Flavin’s influential work until his death in 1996, and is therefore considered by many to be one of the key gallery exhibitions of the 1960’s.”

The book will be out in November and will cost £25. Published by Steidl (an earlier version of this book was published in 2010Dan Flavin: 1964 Green Gallery Exhibition.)
