With his simple yet stunning fluorescent light works, Dan Flavin became one of the most innovative artists of the late-twentieth century. This spring, LACMA Director and exhibition co-curator Michael Govan brings the artist’s mesmerizing installations to LACMA in Dan Flavin: A Retrospective—the final destination of the exhibition’s acclaimed worldwide tour.  
Co-curated by Tiffany Bell. Dan Flavin: A Retrospective is organized by Dia Art Foundation in association with the National Gallery of Art, Washington. The exhibition and accompanying publications are made possible in part by The Henry Luce Foundation, The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, Lannan Foundation, the Terra Foundation for American Art, and the National Endowment for the Arts. The Los Angeles presentation is sponsored by Lexus.
