Blinky Palermo

Opening August 20, 2022, Dia Beacon


Returning to view at Dia Beacon, Times of the Day (1974–76) is a pivotal series in Blinky Palermo’s oeuvre yet one rarely seen in its entirety. Conceived by the artist after his relocation to New York from Düsseldorf in 1973, Times of the Day comprises six four-part works and originates Palermo’s serialized, multipart Metal Pictures (or Metallbilder, in German), the last body of work in his short yet pronounced career.
