An Introduction to Dia’s Locations and Sites


Members $15.96

Released with the reopening of Dia Chelsea in New York, this handy guidebook maps Dia Art Foundation’s constellation of eleven art spaces across the globe. Designed with everyday art lovers and dedicated art tourists in mind, the book charts the institution’s bold history and experimental present. Widely known for Dia Beacon, a destination museum in the Hudson Valley, Dia is the steward for seven dedicated artist sites and maintains four nontraditional exhibition spaces. The artist sites—iconic, site-specific artworks installed in places as disparate as Soho lofts and Times Square to the Utah desert and the Great Salt Lake Basin—attest to Dia’s deep support of such artists as Robert Smithson, Nancy Holt, and Walter De Maria. The book addresses the origins and ongoing significance of these visionary permanent artworks and exhibition spaces and is supplemented by artist writings, maps, and a timeline.
