A focus on the architectural works of the American artist.
Though architecture is clearly not the sole focus of Dan Graham's work, it is one of his themes of predilection, as much in his photography as in his installations and writings. How does Dan Graham use architectural ideas and functions, and conversely, how can architectural thinking respond to his accusations and justifications? This volume attempts to understand and evaluate his work from the perspective of modern and contemporary architecture, the necessary meeting-point for the basic questions he develops: urbanism, public/private space, sociopolitical life, ideological critique.
Dan Graham (born in 1942, lives in New York City) is a highly influential figure in the field of contemporary art, both as an artist and as a well-respected critic and theorist. He was the founding director of the John Daniels Gallery (1964–1965), where he presented Sol LeWitt's first solo exhibition and showed works by Donald Judd, Dan Flavin, and Robert Smithson. Graham is known for his early conceptual work for magazines, his groundbreaking video work, and his site-specific architectural pavilions.
