The first retrospective in the U.S. to feature German artist Blinky Palermo (1943-1977) includes more than 60 works, most of which have never before been shown in North America. This beautifully illustrated volume spans the breadth of Palermo's brief but significant career and explores each phase, beginning with objects and paintings created shortly after he graduated from Joseph Beuys's class at the Dusseldorf Art Academy in the early 1960s and culminating with paintings he produced during his last years in both Germany and New York City. With essays by Benjamin H.D. Buchloh, Lynne Cooke, Suzanne Hudson, Susanne Küper, and James Lawrence.
This monograph is published on the occasion of Dan Flavin: Series and Progressions, the first exhibition of the artist's work at David Zwirner since the gallery announced its representation of the Estate of Dan Flavin. This publication will examine Flavin's use of progressions and serial structures, ideas that were central to the artist's practice throughout his career.
