Dia:Beacon
3 Beekman Street, Beacon

A pioneer of the Mono-ha movement in Japan, Lee Ufan developed a sculptural practice in the 1960s that explored the tension between natural and man-made materials and the dialogue between object and space. In 1972 he changed the titles of the works that he had made up to that point to Relatum, referring to a concept in Heideggerian philosophy, which conveyed the artist’s interest in contingent circumstances. Read more...

The exhibition at Dia:Beacon, resulting from close collaboration with the artist, will showcase Dia’s 2017 acquisition of three sculptural works by Lee – Relatum (formerly System, 1969), Relatum (formerly Language, 1971), and Relatum (1974)—alongside several important loans.

Dia:Beacon
3 Beekman Street, Beacon

Opens October 5, 2019, ongoing.

Since 1962, Marian Zazeela has worked with her long-time collaborator, La Monte Young, on large-scale installations in sound and light. Though Zazeela’s sculptures and light design have become well known, her works on paper have remained decidedly less so. Dia will present approximately 30 works on paper dating from 1962 to 1990 (with the majority from the 1960s and 1970s), which showcase the range of materials and motifs that stem from the artist’s deep interest in calligraphy and ornamental forms.

11:00am - 4:00pm

Dia:Beacon
3 Beekman Street, Beacon

Originally trained as an architect, Barry Le Va began creating horizontally dispersed sculptures while he was a student at Otis College of Art and Design in Los Angeles. Though seemingly random—and emblematic of chance-based operations—these radical works are rigorously planned and arranged for each site-dependent installation. This survey of Le Va’s floor-based installations from the 1960s will include two of his rarely seen powder dispersals, which will be reconfigured for a site-dependent space at Dia:Beacon.

Dia:Beacon
3 Beekman Street, Beacon

On the occasion of the 50th anniversary of Mel Bochner’s first Measurement Room, Dia has commissioned Bochner to realize a new, large-scale work from his Measurement series at Dia:Beacon. Regarded as one of the leading American Conceptual and Postminimal artists in the 1960s and 1970s, Bochner pioneered the play between the characteristics of numerical values, space, and language in his work.

This beloved American holiday classic comes to captivating life as a live 1940s radio broadcast. With the help of an ensemble that brings a few dozen characters to the stage, the story of idealistic George Bailey unfolds as he considers ending his life one fateful Christmas Eve. The message that this show gives to audiences is very simple but something very important. It gives everyone a sense of belonging, that every life, family, relationship, and community matters!
