Corners, Barriers, Corridors & New York City

Dan Flavin: Corners, Barriers & Corridors opened this morning at David Zwirner Gallery in Chelsea. I try to avoid giving opinion on exhibitions as to not influence your interpretation of the art, but it spoke to me in a very dope way; I thought it was appropriate to briefly share.

The use of florescent lights; vertical, horizontal, varying in shapes & sizes & adjacent to one another in doorways, obstructing your path; was so subtly brilliant. 
From my perspective, it is a commentary on new life experiences & for me, New York City. 
All of it is bright, all of it illuminates, all of it demands attention, but it’s totally & completely up to you what is beautiful or ugly or intrusive about each set of lights in each room. Where to stand, what POV brings out the brightness in a way that speaks to your journey & your New York. What is too bright, not bright enough, perfect. 
It’s minimalist design left me inspired in a truly unexpected way. 
A must visit for any creative in NYC.
