This volume, published to celebrate the opening of Dia:Beacon, begins with a statement by Dia's former chairman and patron Leonard Riggio. The introduction by Dia's previous director, Michael Govan, describes the creation of this unique museum in the context of Dia's ambitious artistic mission. Dia curator Lynne Cooke examines the formation of the collection and the conceptual framework within which Dia's program of commissioning, collecting, and presenting art from the 1960s onward evolved. In addition, short critical texts and vibrant photography, concise biographies and bibliographies highlight each artist represented at Dia:Beacon.
