A really great trip yesterday to see (for my first time) Dia Beacon. They really have a fantastic collection–and the space for the installations is perfect. It was completely worth the drive out of the city, which I enjoy anyhow. I was especially impressed by the Robert Smithson pieces, and (of course) Richard Serra and Louise Bourgeois. But I really liked discovering the people whose work I hadn’t seen before–like Donald Judd‘s wooden boxes and Dan Flavin‘s fantastically beautiful flourescent light sculptures.
