9780262571067: Rock My Religion: Writings and Projects 1965-1990 (Writing Art)

Rock My Religion collects eighteen of Graham's essays from all periods of his work, beginning with his essays on minimalist artists such as Dan Flavin and Donald Judd, continuing with his writings on punk rock and popular culture, and concluding with his more recent considerations of architecture, urban space, and power.

Dan Graham's artworks and critical writings have had an enormous influence on the course of contemporary art over the past quarter century. Rock My Religion collects eighteen of Graham's essays from all periods of his work, beginning with his essays on minimalist artists such as Dan Flavin and Donald Judd, continuing with his writings on punk rock and popular culture, and concluding with his more recent considerations of architecture, urban space, and power.

Alternating with these theoretical essays are descriptions and documentations of Graham's own works and installations -- projects that trace his explorations in conceptual art, video, photography, architecture, and public sculpture, showing the integral connections between Graham's criticism and his own artwork. Although as an artist Graham has been associated with minimalism, conceptual art, and postmodernism, his writing does not conform to the stylistic and theoretical constraints of any specific movement. With sources and topics ranging from Ronald Reagan to the Sex Pistols, from Michel Foucault to Dean Martin, Graham's eclectic investigations into the complex cultural relationships between art production and social reality are always strikingly original. What makes these writings particularly astonishing, though, is Graham's willingness to examine specific manifestations of popular culture (television, magazines, rock and roll, drugs) without regard to traditional qualitative judgments and without separating "high" or "low" culture from the processes of everyday life.

About the Author:

Dan Graham's artwork has been exhibited in museums and galleries around the world. His writings have appeared in Artforum, Arts, and numerous other magazines, books, and monographs.

Review:

Dan Graham is one of the most influential artists to emerge from a generation wary of the very notion of 'influence' and weary from oppressive formalist critical concerns. As an artist and a critic, Graham understands how our sense of self is inextricably linked to social constructions such as art history, architecture, rock and roll, and other mass media. His critical stance is refreshing, rigorous, original and essential.

(David A. Ross, Alice Pratt Brown Director)

You don't need to be a fan of Dan Graham's work to get something from this book. You don't even have to know who Dan Graham is...Graham looks at contemporary social practices from some pretty unusual perspectives, the combination of which feels like an intellectual carnival.

(Christina Ritchie Artpapers)
