The Kunstmuseum Basel is being shown in a new light, the light installations of Dan Flavin to be exact. Dedications in Lights presents over 58 unique artworks spanning over three decades of the American artist’s career, including 35 light works, 21 works on paper, two paintings and a selection of art that Flavin first presented at the museum in 1975.

Flavin is globally recognized for his fluorescent light tube installations he first began in the 1960s. Alongside his contemporaries in Ellsworth Kelly and Donald Judd, Flavin was a pioneer in the Minimalist movement for the ways in which he explored the intersection between light, space and color. The resulting artworks are simple in concept, but hypnotic in effect, entrancing audiences from Los Angeles to Tokyo.

Notable works in the show include a wall-mounted piece dedicated to Jasper Johns and a massive light installation that tapers from one wall to the next titled to, as Flavin noted, “my dear b*tch, Airily“. The exhibition recently opened this month and will be on view in Basel until August 18, 2024.
