Damage and repair of scrim in Robert Irwin’s untitled (dawn to dusk)

Shortly before Chinati’s summer solstice event this year in Robert Irwin’s installation untitled (dawn to dusk), the scrim on the dark side was damaged by an impact. The impact left a 37-inch long tear at the bottom of the scrim. It was repaired with the aid of Chinati’s former Director of Conservation Bettina Landgrebe and Vickie Arndt, a former art installer of the Dia Foundation.
