Dan Graham

Dan Graham (*1942 in Urbana, Illinois, †2022 in New York City) is an American conceptual artist whose work traces the symbiosis between architectural environments and their inhabitants. His genre-defying oeuvre spans photography, architecture, sculpture, filmmaking and live performances, alongside curation and critical writing on a broad variety of subjects. In the mid-1970s, Graham created his well-known walk-in mirror pavilions as a mixture of architecture and sculpture. He participated in the Venice Biennale in 1976, 2003, 2005, multiple documentas (1972, 1977, 1982, 1992, 1997) and received the American Academy of Arts and Letters award, among others.
