[bio] Dan Graham [e]


*1942 in Urbana, Illinois; lives and works in New York City [USA]

Graham was owner of a gallery, art and culture theorist, photographer, film producer, performance and installation artist. A pioneer in performance and video art in the 1970's, Graham later turned his attention to architectural projects designed for social interaction in public spaces. Furthermore, writing has been an essential aspect of Graham's work. His texts range from early conceptual art pieces inserted in mass-market magazines, to writings on his fellow artists, to analyses of popular culture.
