Dan Graham

Dan Graham was one of the first artists to work within the parameters of “Conceptual Art” in the 1960s. He works across architecture, film, photography, and performance. Some of the main ideas, themes, and approahces he has explored throughout his career include: inter-subjectivity, the mirror and the double, time delay in videos and performances, the relations between subject and object in space, glass buildings, the alternation between transparency and reflection in his pavilions, allegory, control systems, ephemeral forms of communication, and rock music.

As well as being a prolific artist, Graham has written several books and essays, and his work has complicated the reception of art and writing through projects that combine image and text, such as the seminal “Homes in America.”

The Charles H. Scott Gallery, The ECU Speakers Series, the UBC Department of Art History, Visual Art, and Theory, the Morris and Helen Belkin Art Gallery, and the Rennie Collection are pleased to present a talk by Dan Graham.

The Distinguished Visiting Artist Program is made possible through the generous support of the Rennie Collection.
