All things Dan Graham

Dan Graham, Triangular Pavilion with Circular Cut-outs
Dan Graham's first American Retrospective will be opening at the Whitney June 26th. Dan Graham has been a central figure in contemporary art since the 1960s. His interests range from suburbia and public architecture to punk music and popular culture. This particular exhibition traces the evolution of his art from his early conceptual projects and performances, to his films and videos, architectural projects and pavilions, and sculptures as well as his collaborations with musicians and rock bands. It's interesting that few of Graham’s works have been commissioned or exhibited in the United States. One of the only major works commissioned in the U.S. in the last decade is the Rooftop Urban Park Project, in which he designed the piece Two-Way Mirror Cylinder Inside Cube and Video Salon (1981-1991). So take this rare opportunity to see the spectrum of work that is Dan Graham.
