Curatorial Curiosities: Dia Beacon – Blinky Palermo a Retrospective

On display June 25, 2011 – October 31, 2011

One of the best day trips out of NYC is a visit to Dia: Beacon. The museum is housed in a sprawling former printing factory on the edge of the Hudson. The light in the galleries and the amount of space given to each piece of art is key to the magic of this place. Never once have I felt crowded or rushed here.

I first saw Blinky Palermo’s work here and couldn’t get his name out of my head. According to the Dia Artist Bio, he appropriated from an American boxing manager and mafioso. Now you can check him out for yourself at least until the end of October…
