Quote

“I think I am experiencing my second childhood through my two-way mirror work. I’ve never read Lacan, but I feel my work involves the Lacanian ‘mirror stage’ of childhood, when the young child first experiences his/her sense or non-sense of an ego. I know that through my art I make new friends, which I barely had as a child. And through my ‘hobbies’ of rock music, architectural tourism and travel, I stay young. I know I am a child when I watch other Aries people (I am an Aries) behaving childishly, like me.” Dan Graham, interview with Carmen Rosenberg Miller Parkett No. 68, 2003

About

“… Dan Graham worked as an art dealer, photographer, filmmaker, critic, producer, and writer whose seemingly never-ending vision of interlinking and exploring various disciplines defined and changed the way one perceives a cultural system … His attitude towards art and artists can be described in a quote: "All artists are alike. They dream of doing something that's more social, more collaborative, more real than art."… He can be considered a conceptual artist whose focus lies on cultural phenomena. Graham repetitively incorporates video, performance, glass, and mirror pavillons … such as the one reproduced in his Parkett edition “Fun for Kids at my Work in a Park in Manhattan”. “-Fineartmultiple
