Hello folks! Our week in NYC was such a whirlwind of art, food, walking, subway-ing, and ended with a spontaneous engagement!
One of my favorite adventures led me on beautiful eighty-minute train ride from Grand Central Terminal to Dia:Beacon, which is adjacent to the train station in Beacon in an old Nabisco box-printing factory. The huge galleries and hanger-like spaces are awe-inspiring in themselves, and a perfect setting for large-scale installations.
I was only going to do one post on Dia:Beacon with my favorite shots, but I just can't do one! Let's start with Dan Flavin.
I love that last look of a Flavin peeking around the corner near the exits. That was one of my favorite features of Dia:Beacon: the little glimpses of works from artists I have admired for years, coyly spying at me down the long halls and just around the seemingly never-ending corridors, like "Yeah, we know."
Flavin was also showing at David Zwirner, and I'll do a post on that incredibly colorful (and crowded!) show shortly.
