Dia Art Foundation Presents a New Exhibition of Paintings and Ceramics by Mary Heilmann at the Dan Flavin Art Institute in Bridgehampton

Dia Art Foundation presents a new exhibition of paintings and ceramics by Mary Heilmann at the Dan Flavin Art Institute in Bridgehampton, New York, from June 29, 2017, to May 27, 2018. The exhibition will include key examples from the late 1960s when Heilmann arrived in New York City, alongside works from the late 1980s when she began visiting the East End of Long Island. Several recently finished works that have not been seen outside of her Long Island studio will also be on view, thus marking milestones in her practice to date. Of the recently finished paintings, two are direct responses to the "icons" by Dan Flavin, which were previously on view in this space in Bridgehampton. Although similar to the intimate size and scale of Flavin's icons, Heilmann's layered usage of vibrant colors illuminates these works in a different, but no less iconic, manner.
