Dia Art Foundation will inaugurate a new sound work by artist Max Neuhaus on May 6, 2006, at Dia:Beacon, Riggio Galleries. Commissioned for the museum, Time Piece Beacon (2005) establishes a zone of sound around the perimeter of the facility. Tailored to the building and its surrounding environment, the work introduces an aural experience into the museum. Time Piece Beacon enters Dia’s collection alongside Neuhaus’s Times Square (1977), a sound work located on a pedestrian island at Broadway between 45th and 46th Streets in New York City, which was acquired in 2002.
