Dia:Beacon
3 Beekman Street, Beacon

Ongoing through October 2020. 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.

Dia:Beacon
3 Beekman Street, Beacon

Ongoing. 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

Ongoing. 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.

Dia:Beacon
3 Beekman Street, Beacon

[Dia Beacon closed until further notice] Ongoing through September 2020. Dia Art Foundation commissioned acclaimed Detroit-based techno DJ and producer Carl Craig to create a sound installation at Dia Beacon in dialogue with the unique architecture of the space. Party/After-Party (2020) marks his first commission for an art institution and reimagines Dia Beacon’s lower level, creating a sonic environment that is anchored to the site’s manufacturing history as a former Nabisco packaging factory and recalling a techno tradition of reclaiming industrial spaces for radical experimentation. Free with museum admission. More Info | Dia Beacon Hours
