Dan Flavin’s Neon

Dan Flavin’s Neon

Dan FlavinHow do you fix your drab mood during a hailstorm when it’s supposed to be Spring? Light! Lots of it! And neon! The Dan Flavin Art Institute in Bridgehampton was a colorful beacon this weekend in the midst of a 4-inch snow. In a small barn-style former Baptist church, the downstairs is devoted to typed coded correspondence between Sol LeWitt and Carl Andre. Upstairs is one large space that has been divided by walls to separate the neon colors. So you can experience each light installation individually, or step back and take in the edges of the room which are fully illuminated in a neon spectrum.

All photos below are the works of Dan Flavin, except for the lovely Baptist church sign which is original to the building.Dan FlavinDan Flavin Baptist Church Dan Flavin Dan Flavin Collage

 

A+S digs Dan Flavin and his contemporaries. Check out our visit to his pal Donald Judd’s building in Soho, where Dan Flavin’s neon installation is on prominent display at the foot of Judd’s bed.
