Dan Graham: Greatest Hits Red Brick Art Museum, Beijing, China
The Red Brick Art Museum announces Dan Graham’s first solo exhibition in China at the Museum. Spanning five decades of the artist’s work, this comprehensive exhibition offers a complete overview of the artist’s practice and features over twenty new, recent and historical pieces.
Graham first began exploring issues of the performative, exhibitionism, voyeurism, mirroring and the mundane in the early 1960s and 1970s. As a means of reaching the widest possible audience, the placement of artwork as adverts in newspapers and magazines became Graham’s preferred method of dissemination during this period. On display in China for the first time as part of this exhibition, these magazine projects challenged the idea of value by reducing art to a mere advert and marked Graham’s entry point into conceptual art.
