After working as journalist, photographer, art-theorist and gallery owner, Dan Graham (b.1942 in Urbana, Ill. † 2022 in New York) only turned to a career in the arts in the mid-1960s. His first efforts were literary works with a conceptual background, then films and performances, and from 1970 video installations in which the viewer himself became the object of his own reflection. Since the 1976 Venice Biennale he has worked in terms of open-air installations, using walls of glass and mirror-glass to create complex, partly isolating effects of self-observation. The formal elegance and the depth of meaning of his work makes him one of the most important conceptual artists of the present day.
