A Guggenheim Museum Publication Dan Flavin (1933-1996) was hailed for his pioneering use of light and color divorced from traditional artistic contexts. Employing only commercial fluorescent lights, Flavin devised a radical new art form that circumvented the limits imposed by frames, pedestals, and other conventional means of display. His embrace of the unadorned fluorescent light as an aesthetic object placed him at the forefront of Minimal art.

This book, published on the occasion of an exhibition at the Deutsche Guggenheim Berlin, draws upon the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum's extensive holdings of Flavin's work, which includes representative examples of each of the formats he developed over the course of his career.

Flooded with color on every page, this volume provides a wide-ranging view of Flavin's work and intellectual thought, bringing together contributions by a number of critics and art historians, and including excerpted writings by the artist. illustrated in full color, 9 1/4 x 11 3/4"

J. FIONA RAGHEB is associate curator for Collections and Exhibitions at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York.

EXHIBITION SCHEDULE The Deutsche Guggenheim Berlin Nov. 6, 1999-Feb. 13, 2000
