Dan Flavin : a retrospective by Michael Govan( Book )

15 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 776 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book - the first retrospective publication of Flavin's art since 1969 - features the artist's most significant light works, beginning with a pivotal series of constructed boxes with attached incandescent or fluorescent lights, called icons, made from 1961 to 1963. These icons demonstrate the influence of painters such as Barnett Newman as well as object makers such as Marcel Duchamp. Works spanning Flavin's career are discussed in depth, including examples that integrate light with the surrounding space and show the particular characteristics of blended fluorescent light, large-scale installations, and constructed corridors. The book also features reproductions of Flavin's drawings, which reveal his thought processes, working methods, and the wider range of his interests." "Three critical essays offer overviews and new interpretations of Flavin's work, while an extensive chronology, comprehensive bibliography, and exhibition history present scholarly data never before available. In addition, this book includes Flavin's seminal text "' ... in daylight or cool white.' an autobiographical sketch," originally published in Artforum in 1965, and two interviews with the artist - one from 1972 and the other from 1982." "With many new color reproductions, Dan Flavin: A Retrospective captures the artist's challenging contribution to twentieth-century art and will be the authoritative volume on Flavin for years to come."--Jacket
Dan Flavin : the complete lights, 1961-1996 by Michael Govan( Book )

11 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 413 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This volume features a complete catalogue of more than 750 of the artist's light works. The first publication to present all of Flavin's lights together and the only book to document the artist's entire career, The Complete Lights features hundreds of color images, many reproduced from new photography. Each light is represented by a photograph and/or a graphic diagram as well as comprehensive information about its construction, exhibition history, and appearance in publications. In this way, The Complete Lights enables the reader to gain insights into the development of the work, the artist's working methods, and the wider range of his interests and serves as a resource for students, scholars, dealers, and collectors." "New scholarship and interpretation of Flavin's work also appears in the form of three critical essays by experts and an extensive chronology, comprehensive bibliography, and exhibition history. In addition, this book includes Flavin's text, "' ... in daylight or cool white.' an autobiographical sketch," originally published in Artforum in 1965, and two interviews with the artist - one from 1972 and the other from 1982"--Jacket

Dan Flavin, Lights by Dan Flavin( Book )

7 editions published in 2012 in 3 languages and held by 38 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In the early 1960s, US artist Dan Flavin (1933-1996) began using commercially available fluorescent tubes in standard sizes and colours to create an unmistakable œuvre. Precision and careful calculation are bound together with a sensual aura. By choosing the tubes as the material for his works, Flavin signalised the increasing proximity of art with everyday life and the consumer world. The ways in which they are presented are derived from principles of minimalist sobriety."
