The artist Dan Graham (b. 1942) has a wide-ranging practice that encompasses writing, performance art, installation, video, photography, and architecture. Throughout his career, Graham has examined the symbiosis between architectural environments and their inhabitants, particularly in his pavilions made of glass and mirrors.

His new installation, created for the roof garden of The Metropolitan Museum of Art, addresses current issues about suburban psychology and political surveillance. Graham’s work combines landscaping, hedges, and two-way mirrors to create a provocative, immersive experience for viewers. This creatively designed publication includes an insightful interview between the artist and Sheena Wagstaff and focuses not only on Graham’s latest commission but also on his previous landscape-oriented installations, providing a focused, fascinating study of one of today’s leading contemporary artists.
Sheena Wagstaff is chairman and Ian Alteveer is assistant curator, Department of Modern and Contemporary Art, The Metropolitan Museum of Art.
