Dan Graham's New Jersey

By Buckley,Craig and Mark Wasiuta (Editors)

Zurich: Lars Muller & Columbia University GSAPP, 2012. Book. New. Hardcover. 1st Edition. 4to - over 9¾ - 12" tall. New, tan linen HARD cover with black font on cover and spine and tipped in photo of Don Graham on back cover, 191 pps. Pristine condition as it is new. We've placed this under protective mylar to assure it stays in this conditionl GIFT quality. Graham, known for his series, "Homes for America", now continues this theme in many of the photos edited for this copy. "To this day the theme of architecture and its surfaces represents an extremely important facet of his work, as does the question of what role it plays in postmodern society and in the context of everyday culture. This publication presents new photographs by Dan Graham, taken in the context of a study trip with the architecture faculty of Columbia University, together with a selection of original photographs from the Homes for America series. The new images exhibit stark similarities to the old pictures, because they were taken in the same locations, in the same deserts of suburban streets and housing that Graham had photographed in the 1960s. This creates a fascinating reference system of repetitions and differences, in terms of both the temporal and the spatial, that asks questions of the viewer about architecture, public space, and their function in society."
