Including and augmenting the exhibition catalogue on Dan Flavin's art (see Dan Flavin: A Retrospective), this remarkable book features a complete catalogue of over 750 of the artist's light works. Presenting all of Flavin's lights together for the first time, this is the only publication to document the artist's entire career. Flavin's art has not been widely reproduced, and this definitive volume includes hundreds of images featuring exquisite new photography of well-known pieces as well as many rarely seen and unknown works. Each light work is illustrated by a beautiful color reproduction and/or a graphic diagram. Comprehensive information on each work, including title, date, medium, dimensions, edition, exhibition history, bibliography, and a brief discussion, reveals new insights into the artist's working methods and provides an invaluable resource for students, scholars, dealers, and collectors.

Known for his signature use of commercial fluorescent light fixtures, Dan Flavin in the early 1960s created eight wall-mounted pieces which he called Icons: monochrome wooden crates, onto which he mounted colored light bulbs or light fixtures. They bring to mind the interface between the religious mysticism of light, the illuminated billboards on Broadway and the neon shrines of popular art.

In making light his primary medium, Dan Flavin (1933-1996) established himself as one of the most innovative and significant artists of the minimalist movement.

Dan Flavin: New Light includes essays that respond to this exhibition and to the renewed interest in Flavin's work and its place in 20th-century art.
