Dan Graham’s work addresses such notions as the dual role of the viewer (or audience) as both perceiver and perceived. To that end he employed performance art, mirrors, video art, architecture, and other media to examine aspects of the human gaze and the individual’s role in society.
In 1964 cofounded and directed the John Daniels Gallery in New York, which exhibited the works of conceptual and minimalist artists such as Sol LeWitt, Robert Smithson, and Donald Judd. Graham closed the gallery in 1965 and began instead to make art himself. He explored systematic repetition in the conceptual works and again in a series of photographs of suburban American housing, Homes for America (1966–67).
During the 1970s Graham delved into film and video performances featuring actors, including himself, in what he termed pavilions—steel, architectural structures featuring two-way reflective-glass mirrors intended to allow individuals to view themselves as others viewed them. He often repurposed these performances in works such as Opposing Mirrors and Video Monitors on Time Delay (1974; 1993)—which used videos, wall mirrors, and partitions to confuse the spatial sense of the observer.
In the 1980s Graham began to explore art in its social context. His examination of modern art themes and popular culture—as evidenced in his video documentary Rock My Religion (1982–84), which focused on rock-and-roll culture—gained him somewhat of a cult following among younger artists.
Graham’s works were featured in several important exhibitions, including Public/Private (1994), which opened at the Moore College of Art and Design in Philadelphia. Dan Graham, Works 1965–2000, a major retrospective, opened in 2001 at the Museu Serralves in Porto, Portugal, and in 2009 Graham received his first significant American retrospective, Dan Graham: Beyond, organized by the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles, in collaboration with the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York.
