Dan Flavin – Lights

This post is also available in: Serbian/Croatian/Bosnian

MUMOK is showing two exciting exhibitions which can be consumed together or separately: “Dan Flavin – Lights” and “Poetry of Reduction; Minimal, Concept, Land Art” – a well curated show which also includes Flavin’s art pieces, this time in a broader international context. Flavin was, after all, one of the pioneers of minimal art, an honor he shared with some of the most influential artists of the 20th century – Donald Judd, Sol LeWitt, Carl Andre, John McCracken, Walter de Maria and Robert Morris.

What doesn’t happen often is that an exhibition immediately melts into its exhibiting space. The strong reflection of fluorescent tubes which paint the naked walls in cold layers of blue, green, red and yellow, looks like it was “conceived” there and no place other.
