FLAVIN + THE LIGHT PROJECT

Exhibition Catalogue Website for the Dan Flavin exhibit at the Pulitzer Foundation for the Arts in St. Louis. The installation of renowned light artist Dan Flavin was one of the largest exhibitions of his work since his death. Flavin’s art is necessarily site-specific, so TOKY and the show’s curators worked hand in hand to determine how best to present the work online. Rather than simply showing the work, we opted for a more exploratory experience, helping the viewer understand the art in the context of Ando’s architecture. 

The accompanying Light Project site was designed to be a place where the participating artists could update the public on the creation of their work through a series of blogs.
