Brand new copy of the now out-of-print Dan Graham catalogue raisonne, published to accompany a major traveling exhibition held from 13 January to 25 March 2001 at the Museum of Contemporary Art Serralves, 21 June to 30 September at the Musée d’art moderne de la Ville de Paris from 25 November to 10 February 2002 in Kroller Müller Museum in Otterlo and May to August 2002 at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Helsinki.

Since the 1960s, Dan Graham has carved out a unique space in the field of contemporary art, combing his work as an artist and as a critic of architecture and art in a unique fusion of theory and practice. From the outset, Graham engaged seriously with the aesthetic and political ramifications of Structuralism, taking the artist’s critical perceptions of reality to an increasingly conceptual level. His early articles grappled with the question of architecture, arguing that behind the high-rise apartment complexes and housing projects spreading over the Western world lay the phenomenon of economic and social rationalization. Since the beginning of the 1970s Graham has pursued these and other observations with installations, videos, films and large-scale pavilions that serve as thought-models for his critical insights.

This catalogue raisonne provides a comprehensive, chronological documentation of 165 works and writings from 1965 until the present day, and includes articles, written sketches, Graham’s reports about his artistic activities, art critical essays, film stills, architectural models, pavilions and video rooms, as well as an extensive bibliography. With essays by preeminent critic/philosophers Benjamin Buchloh and Thierry de Duve, among others, the result is a complete and edifying look at one of the premier artist-scholars of the past thirty years.
