13 Oct - 3 Feb 2013. MUMOK hosts a retrospective exhibition dedicated to Dan Flavin (1933-1996), one of the principal exponents of the Minimalist art movement.
In particular the exhibition focuses on the American artist's pioneering use of light as both a subject and a medium in his art work.
Flavin began experimenting with light in the 1960s with his “Icons” series of paintings which had coloured light bulbs attached to the edges of the canvas. He subsequently worked using only lights - often neon, fluorescent tube lighting - all the time pushing the boundaries of art.
This is the first exhibition in Austria to be devoted to this aspect of Flavin's work.
Mon 14.00-19.00. Tues-Sun 10.00-19.00. Thurs 10.00-21.00
