Dan Graham


The work of Dan Graham (b. 1942 in Urbana, Illinois, living and working in New York) was strongly influenced, outside an academic artist training, by his experience as an arts journalist, photographer, gallery owner, writer and art theorist. In his works, Graham consistently deals with the human being interrelated with his environment. Here, communication, cultural networking and active intervention in the reality of life are his main focus. Known as a pioneer in the field of video and performance art of the 1970s, his work also includes sculpture, photography and conceptual works, as well as the theoretical approach as an author. Numerous exhibitions in international institutions were dedicated to Dan Graham’s oeuvre, including Turner Contemporary, Kent (2013); Hamburger Kunsthalle (2012); Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles (2009); Museo d’Arte Contemporanea, Turin (2006); Musée d’Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris and Kunst-Werke, Berlin (1999). He was also frequently represented at the documenta (1972, 1977, 1982, 1992, 1997). Architecture to Graham serves as a basic vehicle for the investigation of organizational structures of the social space and the human psyche. This interest is reflected not only in his famous glass and mirror pavilions. In the series of small, conceptual drawings, his approach becomes evident, the basal principles of social (inter-)action are transferred to the symbolic, at the same time they serve as studies and project outlines for unrealized pavilions.
