dan flavin: constructed light

in 2008 the pulitzer foundation for the arts in st. louis mounted a two-phase exhibition of dan flavin's flourescent work. occupying every level of the tadao ando designed building including the exterior, the work was installed to 'accommodate the spaces in ways that both complemented and challenged the architecture without compromising the integrity of flavin's art'.
