Description

American Pop pioneer Jim Dine was asked by Los Angeles' Getty Museum in 2007 to produce the first contemporary project for the Getty Villa in Malibu by responding in some way to its renowned antiquities collection. Dine was drawn to the collection's ancient Greek sculptures and was given a room in the Villa for which he created three new monumental wood sculptures that he painted brightly in the Hellenistic tradition. Dine also wrote a long poem, which he installed alongside the sculptures, on the gallery wall. "Jim Dine: Poet Singing (The Flowering Sheets)" documents the entire process with photographs by Dine, Diana Michener and Gerhard Steidl. Jim Dine was born in Cincinnati, Ohio, in 1935. He came to prominence in New York in the 1960s with Happenings that he orchestrated along with Claes Oldenburg and Allan Kaprow.show more
