This event has ended.

The gallery is pleased to present this two-person exhibition featuring works on paper and canvas by James Brooks and fluorescent light sculptures by Dan Flavin.

This exhibition pairs these visually disparate bodies of work by exploring the mutual professional respect and friendship Brooks and Flavin had for one another, demonstrated through correspondence, curation of exhibitions and dedication of artworks. While Brooks’ painterly Abstract Expressionist tableaux vary tremendously from Flavin’s controlled, conceptually driven Minimalist light sculptures, both artists paid particular attention to color and the application of their media on the base surface whether paper, canvas or wall.
