Dan Graham by Birgit Pelzer( Book )

10 editions published in 2001 in English and German and held by 443 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Dan Graham is among the most influential of the Conceptual artists who emerged in America during the mid 1960s. A pioneer in performance and video art in the 1970s, Graham later turned his attention to architectural projects designed for social interaction in public spaces. Writing has always been a major aspect of Graham's work. His texts range from early Conceptual art pieces inserted in mass-market magazines, to writing on his fellow artists, to analyses of popular culture, from Dean Martin to the post-Punk era. Well-known also among architects and urban theorists, during the 1990s Graham has been offered major public commissions throughout North America and Europe.--From publisher description

"This title, published in 1979 and long since out of print. The original book was released in the series of publications Source Materials of the Contemporary Arts.

Graham's installations and performances with video from the years 1970-78 are documented with numerous illustrations, photos, and brief descriptions. In addition, the volume contains an essay by the artist in which he examines the various possibilities and forms of representation offered by the video medium, and draws the boundaries between these and representational spaces in television, film, or architecture. The book also offers contributions by Michael Asher and Dara Birnbaum, as well as an annex with a biography and bibliography"--Cover sleeve
Dan Graham by Dan Graham( Book )

2 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 203 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Since the 1960s, Graham's heterogeneous practice has touched on such disparate subjects as tract houseing, the Shakers, punk music, and architectural theory; he has made videos, architectural models, closed-circuit installations, and glass pavilions. He situated his work on the borders between earth art, minimalism, and conceptualism. Although varing widely in subject and medium, his artwork and writings display a consistent interest in spectatorship, public-private relationshipsh, and the constructed environment. This volum gathers key texts by critics and theorists that offer alternative accounts of Graham's art.--Back cover

3 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 96 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book follows the development of the innovative new foyer extension to the Hayward Gallery on the South Bank, London, in particular the construction of an elliptical, two-way mirror glass pavilion. Entitled Waterloo sunset at the Hayward Gallery, the pavilion has been designed by New York-based artist Dan Graham in collaboration with Haworth Tompkins Architects." "Including texts by Hayward Gallery Director Susan Ferleger Brades, architect Graham Haworth and Hayward Curator Emma Mahony, along with transcripts from an interview between writer and curator Mark Francis and the artist, this book provides an insight into the impetus and inspirations behind the creation of this new structure. Jam-packed with illustrations - from preliminary architect's drawings and plans to images of the construction process and reproductions of other Dan Graham works - it tells the story of a cross-disciplinary collaboration between artist and architecture."--BOOK JACKET

Nuggets : new and old writing on art, architecture, and culture by Dan Graham( Book )

2 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 71 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Dan Graham (born 1942) began his career directing the John Daniels Gallery in New York City in 1964, where he mounted Sol LeWitt's first one-man show. Graham considered himself a writer-artist, publishing essays and reviews on topics ranging from rock music to Eisenhower's paintings and Dean Martin's television show. His earliest projects dealt with the magazine page, and one of his seminal early works was a series of magazine-style photographs with text, 'Homes for America' (1966-1967). Today he is among America's most prominent artists, both as a practitioner and as a well-respected critic and theorist. This important and substantial collection brings together an assortment of texts both old and new, with writings on art, artists' books, architecture and various artists Graham admires. Also included is a selection of interviews conducted since the 1990s.0Exhibition: Palazzo delle Esposizioni, Rome, Italy (22.4.-12.7.2013)

Apolonija Šušteršic : selected projects 1995-2012 by Apolonija Šušteršič( Book )

2 editions published in 2013 in Spanish and held by 49 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Published on the occasion of her project at MUSAC Museo de Arte Contemporáneo in León this publication offers the first comprehensive survey on the work of Slovenian artist/architect Apolonija Šušteršic. Through a selection of projects spanning from 1995 to 2012, this monograph shows the methodologies and strategies of an artist whose practice touches on different aesthetical and political tendencies such as Conceptual art, Contextualism, institutional critique, and relational aesthetics. As an architect and artist, her work engages processes from both fields as well as applied design and other social sciences. Sustersic's project can be described as putting into practice a "politics in space." A "transdisciplinary," collaborative approach as such, it is absolutely indispensable when analyzing contexts as variegated as urban life, art museums, and other institutions and social spaces. 0Exhibition: MUSAC Museo de Arte Contemporáneo, León, Spain (19.01.-16.06.2013)

Rock my religion a video by Dan Graham( Visual )

8 editions published between 1984 and 2004 in English and held by 43 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

..."Thesis on the relation between religion and rock music in contemporary culture. Graham formulates a history that begins with the Shakers, an early religious community who practiced self-denial and ecstatic trance dances. With the "reeling and rocking" of religious revivals as his point of departure, Graham analyzes the emergence of rock music as religion with the teenage consumer in the isolated suburban milieu of the 1950s, locating rock's sexual and ideological context in post-World War II America. The music and philosophies of Patti Smith, who made explicit the trope that rock is religion, are his focus"--Electronic Arts Intermix website
