The other day i went to see Dia:Beacon, a museum for the Dia Art Foundation’s collection of art from the 1960s to the present. The museum, which opened in 2003, is situated on the banks of the Hudson River in Beacon, 1,5 hour north from New York. The museum is a former Nabisco box-printing facility that was renovated by Dia with artist Robert Irwin and architect OpenOffice.

Dia Art Foundation is a non-profit organization that initiates, supports, presents, and preserves art projects. With the 22.000 m2 of exhibition space, each gallery is designed specifically for the art it contains. This includes Andy Warhol’s 1978–79 multipart work Shadows;Richard Serra’s monumental steel sculptures Torqued Ellipses; Imi Knoebel’s 24 Colors-for Blinky, 1977; Zoe Leonard; You see I am here after all, 2008; Fred Sandback’s ‘string pieces’ and others. My favorite was Sol LeWitt’s Drawing Series…
