Dear Friends,
Thank you for being part of Dia Art Foundation’s community. I hope you have seen the recent announcement published in the New York Times about our initiative to offer free admission at Dia:Chelsea when we reopen in September 2020. Dia’s mission has always been to create an inclusive space for audiences to engage with art, and we are delighted to offer free admission at all our New York City sites. During this exciting period of growth, your support and participation is more important than ever.
Although our site in Chelsea is currently closed for renovation, we remain active across our other locations during this period. Four diverse, new exhibitions opened at Dia:Beacon over the past several months this fall. I encourage you to visit the museum and see the remarkable works by Mel Bochner, Sam Gilliam, Barry Le Va, and Marian Zazeela. In addition, an immersive sound installation by DJ and music producer Carl Craig will open in March. The celebrated Jacqueline Humphries exhibition will remain on display through May 2020 at the Dan Flavin Art Institute in Bridgehampton.
We are also looking forward to the upcoming exhibition of Renata Lucas’s work at Dia:Chelsea next year, which will explore issues of urban transformation and interact with the surrounding landscape of the New York City neighborhood. This will be Lucas’s first institutional commission in the United States, and we are excited to work with her on such a dynamic project.
Thank you for continuing to support Dia’s sites and programs with your involvement. As a visitor, donor, or member, your engagement with Dia allows us to sustain and share these unique projects with audiences across the country and around the world. I hope you will consider making a year-end contribution today.
We wish you a warm holiday season and look forward to seeing you at Dia in the new year.
