New Perspective on Flavin

“Dan Flavin, to Lucie Rie and Hans Coper, Master Potters,” the first exhibition to bring together Flavin’s work with that of the two renowned European ceramicists, is on view at the Vito Schnabel Gallery in St. Moritz, Switzerland, through Feb. 4. For those fortunate enough to be in the neighborhood, a reception will be held tomorrow from 6 to 8 p.m.

The show includes 18 of Flavin’s fluorescent light works from two 1990 series dedicated to the Vienna-born Rie and her German protégé, Coper, as well as 15 vessels from his personal collection of objects by the two late artists. Organized in collaboration with Stephen Flavin, president of the Flavin estate, the exhibition “has been conceived to explore affinities between three artists who employed dramatically different mediums to establish and redefine space and to investigate issues of materiality, harmony, and permanence,” according to the gallery.

Flavin lived in Bridgehampton from 1972 until his death in 1996.
