Just over one year ago, we lost a visionary artist and dear friend in Dan Graham. The artist will be honored in a Memorial to be held at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York at the end of March. 303 Gallery, Lisson Gallery, Marian Goodman Gallery, 3A Gallery and Printed Matter are honored to present works by Graham across their NYC spaces to coincide with the memorial, paying tribute to a figure whose legacy extends beyond his art making and will continue to be felt by the many who encountered Graham while he was alive.
303 Gallery invited David Platzker to curate a concise history of Dan Graham’s earliest Projects for Publication produced between 1966 and 1981. In these works Graham is a poet, music critic, cultural theorist, and artist engaged in bridging the gulf between artistic output and an artist actively seeking populist venues for placement for his works. Those sites of engagement include the magazines Harpers’s Bazaar, Extensions, Art-Language, New York Review of Sex & Politics, Screw, Fusion, and other periodicals.
On view alongside these works will be Dan Graham’s Neo-Baroque Walkway, 2020. Graham's model allows the viewer to become both participant and spectator in perceiving the space physically and psychologically in relation to other spectators.
