Introduction by Richard Koshalek and Kerry Brougher. Text by Dan Flavin
"monuments" for V. Tatlin from Dan Flavin, 1964-1982 is published on the occasion of the eponymous exhibition at The Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles in 1984.
From 1963, when he conceived the diagonal of May 25, 1963 (to Constantin Brancusi), a single gold, fluorescent lamp that is installed on a diagonal on the wall—a work which marks the artist’s first use of fluorescent light alone, until his death in 1996, Dan Flavin (1933-1996) produced a singularly consistent and prodigious body of work that utilized commercially-available fluorescent lamps to create installations, or “situations” as he preferred to call them, of light and color. Through the construction of light, Flavin was able to literally establish and redefine space.
