Installation by Dan Flavin (untitled, 1970), a work that was conceived as an edition of three, but only two were produced. The other one is installed in Donald Judd Foundation, 101 Spring Street Space, in New York City, the first building Judd owned, where he worked and lived with his family. It was created specifically to illuminate the family’s bedroom, at a time that the two artists and friends were working so closely together that, for a while, they had become Flavin & Judd.
The gorgeous windows behind Flavin’s installation are part of Robert Irwin’s design for Dia: Beacon, Beacon Project (1999–2003) that conceived the museum as a work of art itself.
Just barriers, artfully stacked.
