Fire at Dia:Beacon Damages Million Dollar Mary Corse Painting


Art Standard Time | Mary Corse

A fire at Dia:Beacon broke out on Saturday caused by an overheated electrical component of an artwork ignited on the first floor of the museum.  No injuries were reported as the fire was put out within 30 minutes. A work by Mary Corse that contained the source of the fire was damaged. 

Since the mid-1960s, Corse has experimented with different ways to physically imbue her paintings with light. Her techniques have included the use of materials that project, reflect, and refract, such as electric light, glazed ceramic tiles, and retroreflective glass beads. These materials, which respond to their environmental conditions, are applied in simple configurations, using the logic of the grid as an organizing principle. Corse is known for her work within the Light and Space Movement. Centered largely in California, the movement emerged in the 1960s as an offshoot of conceptual art, one that attempted to understand artwork as a function of sensory perception.

Hannah Gompertz, director of communications and marketing for the Dia Art Foundation, said:

"A small, contained fire broke out in one of our galleries at Dia:Beacon at the end of the day on Saturday, October 20. The fire appears to have been caused by an electrical element attached to a work of art by Mary Corse that overheated. The building was immediately evacuated, and no one was injured. The Corse galleries will be reopened tomorrow with the work in question deinstalled. All other Corse works in these galleries will remain on view."

    HOW TO RECOVER LOST CRYPTO FUNDS – CAPTAIN WEBGENESIS.

    I was initially drawn to the investment scheme due to the promises of high returns and the assurance of a secure investment. However, as time went on, I began to realize that the investment was nothing but a scam. I lost access to my investment and was left feeling helpless and frustrated. It was a painful experience, and I felt like I had no options left. After some research online, I came across several crypto recovery services and read reviews and testimonials from previous clients. It was essential to find a reputable and trustworthy service to help me recover my investment. After careful consideration, I decided to contact Captain WebGenesis, who had excellent reviews and testimonials. I was impressed by their professionalism and responsiveness, and they explained the recovery process in detail, which gave me hope. After a successful recovery I promised to give a review of his wonderful job. I highly Recommend Captain WebGenesis to all scam victims seeking help to get back their lost Crypto.
