Dear Friends,
Dia is an arts community unlike any other, maintaining iconic Land art works, artist-driven projects, and an unparalleled collection at eleven locations throughout the United States and the world. As a donor, member, or visitor, your participation allows Dia to sustain the vision of our artists. Thank you.
In just this past year, Dia acquired Nancy Holt’s Sun Tunnels (1973–76), presented long-term installations of works by Mary Corse and Dorothea Rockburne at Dia:Beacon, and displayed Keith Sonnier’s experiential film and light installation Dis-Play II (1970) at the Dan Flavin Art Institute. I encourage you to visit Dia:Chelsea, where Blinky Palermo’s To the People of New York City (1976), alongside an exhibition of Holt’s early and rarely seen installation works, will remain on view until March 2019.
This year also marks a homecoming for Andy Warhol’s Shadows (1978–79), a monumental series of paintings that was first presented by Dia in 1979. Shadows is on view at 205 West 39th Street in New York City through December 15. I hope you will have a chance to visit the exhibition in its final weeks in the city, before it is reinstalled on long-term view at Dia:Beacon early next year.
We look forward to building upon our program in 2019 with a major retrospective of German artist Charlotte Posenenske. This exhibition premieres at Dia:Beacon in March 2019 and, for many, will provide a first introduction to the work of this groundbreaking, often overlooked artist.
Thank you for continuing to support Dia’s constellation of sites and special projects with your generosity and involvement. I hope you will find inspiration at Dia in the new year.
