Imi Knoebel, 24 Colors—for Blinky, 1977
May 17, 2008 - ongoing
Knoebel’s cycle of 21 shaped paintings,
24 Colors—for Blinky, is presented for the first time in North America
at Dia:Beacon. Acquired for Dia’s collection shortly after it was realized,
this epic cycle marks the artist’s first sustained engagement with
color in its manifold guises.
The restoration and presentation of Imi Knoebel’s 24 Colors—for Blinky is made possible through the generous support of Gucci. As part of the company’s larger initiative to make possible the preservation of significant artworks, Gucci has made a multi-year commitment to Dia’s conservation initiatives.
