Since the 1960s, Dan Graham's heterogeneous practice has touched on such disparate subjects as tract housing, the Shakers, punk music, and architectural theory; he has made videos, architectural models, closed-circuit installations, and glass pavilions. Graham, who came of age during the emergence of earth art, minimalism, and conceptualism, has situated his work on the borders between these different strains of contemporary practice.
Through various writings and a survey of his projects, this book presents a body of work situated on the edge between suburban architectural cliches, "high" architecture, and "low" corporate architecture.
Since the '60s, Dan Graham has been making radical work in print, video, performance, and architectural installation. In the late '70s he began designing his pavilions, structures in steel and semi-reflective glass that comment on local architecture and offer rich social moments for people to reflect on the world around them.
Dan Graham's body of art and theory--which dates from shortly after he moved to New York in 1964--has become a key part of the Conceptual art canon. He is a highly influential figure in the field of Contemporary art, both as a practitioner and as a well-respected critic and theorist.
