Since the mid-1960s, Dan Graham has produced an important body of art and theory that engages in a highly analytical discourse on the historical, social and ideological functions of contemporary cultural systems. Architecture, popular music, video and television are among the focuses of his investigations, which are translated into essays, performances, installations, videotapes and architectural/sculptural designs.
Graham began using film and video in the 1970s, creating installation and performance works that actively engage the viewer in an inquiry into public and private, audience and performer, objectivity and subjectivity. In installations focusing on the social implications of television, as articulated in private and public viewing spaces, Graham refers to video's semiotic function in architecture in relation to both window and mirror. Graham has also published numerous critical and theoretical essays that investigate the cultural ideology of such contemporary social phenomena as punk music, suburbia and public architecture. Graham has published numerous critical essays, and is the author of Video-Architecture-Television (1980). His work is in the collections of major institutions in USA and Europe, including Moderna Museet, Stockholm; Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris; and The Tate Gallery, London. He has had retrospective exhibitions at Van Abbemuseum, Eindhoven, Holland; Museum of Modern Art, Oxford, England; The Renaissance Society, University of Chicago; Kunsthalle, Berne, Switzerland; and the Art Gallery of Western Australia, Perth; and has been represented internationally in group exhibitions/institutions such as Documenta 7, Kassel, Germany; Art Institute of Chicago; Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam; P.S.1, New York; American Film Institute National Video Festival, Los Angeles; and The Museum of Modern Art, New York, among other festivals and institutions.
The late fifties and early sixties Weiner spent travelling throughout North America (USA, Mexico, and Canada). The first presentation of his work was Mill Valley California in 1960. Lawrence Weiner divides his time between his studio in New York City and his boat in Amsterdam. He participates in public and private projects and exhibitions, in both the new and old world, maintaining that Art is the empirical fact of the relationships of objects to objects in relations to human beings, and not dependant upon historical precedent for either use or legitimacy.
