Dan Graham

December 1, 1986 | Video Lecturer:

Dan Graham describes his various pavilion installations, and explains that he is only interested in pavilions as exhibition space rather than creating a sculpture for a museum. He talks about the influence of Mies van der Rohe’s Barcelona Pavilion and the effect of how “nature could exist in a cubist play of reflections.” Graham talks about his work as “somewhere between architecture and sculpture,” and his interest in their intersection while avoiding “utopian self-contained objects.” In describing his “favorite unbuilt project,” Graham states the “cinematic” is a component of all architecture. Graham describes his preference for a limited palette of materials and avoiding color.
