"Dan Graham: Works 1965-2000"
2001-11-24 until 2002-02-10
Kröller-Müller Museum
Otterlo, , NL Netherlands

Works 1965-2000 is the title of a Dan Graham retrospective in the Kröller-Müller Museum from November 24 until February 10 2002. Graham is no stranger to the Kröller-Müller, which purchased his Two Adjacent Pavilions (1978-1982) for its collection back in 1985. First installed by Graham during dokumenta 7, the work now occupies a prominent place in the museum's front garden, near the entrance. Never before, however, has the Kröller-Müller devoted an entire exhibition to this important American artist.

This most comprehensive Dan Graham retrospective hitherto presents a wide range of his rich and surprising output. Approximately sixty works will reflect every facet of his oeuvre: photographs, performances, conceptual work, installations, models, pavilions/sculptures and films.

In his work Graham reflects on the place and reception of the work of art in its cultural and political context. Drawing freely on both popular culture and intellectual sources, he reveals the structures of life around us. Graham's ability to give form to the artist's role as a critical observer of reality is one of his most important achievements. His output falls roughly into two periods. The first ten years (from 1965 to the mid-1970s) being characterised by his conceptual works, his essays, films, performances, video and time-delay installations and three-dimensional mirrored spaces, the latter of which culminated in Public Space/Two Audiences, on show at the 1976 Venice Biennale. This work ushered in a new phase in which Graham concentrates on architectural models and pavilions. But from the same period dates Rock my Religion, a monumental video demonstrating Graham's fascination in rock music and on show in the Kröller-Müller exhibition.

The exhibition will be documented by an extensive and copiously illustrated catalogue Dan Graham Works 1965-2000, with articles by Marianne Brouwer (ed.), Eric de Bruyn, Thierry de Duve, Brian Hatton, John Miller, as well as Benjamin Buchloh's and Markus Müller's interviews with the artist and a complete catalogue raisonné, published by Richter Verlag, 420 pp.

This travelling exhibition is organised by the Fundação de Serralves, Museu de Arte Contemporãneo, Porto, in association with the Musée d'Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris, the Kröller-Müller Museum, Otterlo, and Kiasma, the Museum of Contemporary Art, Helsinki. Curators: Corinne Diserens, Marianne Brouwer.
