It is what it is and it ain't nothing else (is it?)
Ikon's newest exhibition has launched
In 2010, the European Commission ruled that the work of deceased American artist, Dan Flavin, should be classfied for tax purposes as mere light fixtures. Widely revered for his fifty years of art creation, Team Ikon is doing the artworld equivalent of flicking the Vs at the European largesse with the gallery's new exhibition—which consists exclusively of fluorescent light works by Flavin and launched last night. Untitled (to Don Judd, colorist) 1-5, consists of 5 T-bars and, like all Flavin's sculptures, was dedicated to a person the post-war artist respected, in this case to his friend, the artist Donald Judd (who ultimately named his son Flavin in 1968). It is what it is and it ain't nothing else continues until June 26. Entry is free.
