*FULL* New York, NY | Dia Chelsea Chryssa Exhibition Tour with Megan Holly Witko

March 30, 2023 | 6:00 pm 7:30 pm

Chryssa Gates to Times Square Bill Jacobson

Join us for a tour of Chryssa & New York at Dia Chelsea led by exhibition curator Megan Holly Witko. Co-organized by Dia Art Foundation and the Menil Collection, Chryssa & New York is the first comprehensive survey of works by Greek-born artist Chryssa (1933–2013) to take place in North America since 1982. A leading figure of the New York art world in the 1950s and ’60s, Chryssa developed an innovative approach to activating sculptural surfaces through subtle manipulations of light and shadow. Pathbreaking in its use of signage, text, and neon, her vastly under-recognized body of work bridges Pop, Conceptual, and Minimalist ideas of art making. This exhibition focuses on works from these decades through to the early 1970s, bringing together Chryssa’s deeply formal concerns and critical interest in exploring the United States following World War II.

DIA Chelsea 537 W 22nd St, New York, NY 10011
