DAN GRAHAM: BEYOND

Photobucket

I recently saw a retrospective of Dan Graham's work at the Walker in Minneapolis and thought I'd share a link to an interesting interview with him by Museo Magazine. In it, he denounces Maurizio Cattelan's work as "90s cynical". An interesting accusation considering his work could certainly be written off as a precious collection of "60s idealism". I happen to identify strongly with both schools of thought.

If you're unfamiliar with Graham's work, there's a short preview of his seminal work, "Rock My Religion" on youtube. The real deal is over an hour long.

JAMES GALLAGHER

Vacant looking collages by James Gallagher. The bio on his website is kind of useless in terms of personal information, but he also has a blog which is full of his most recent work as well as a more descriptive biography.

I'm not tech-savvy enough to save pictures off of a flash website so just promise me you'll check out the gallery on his website because all my favourite images are trapped in there. And before you make fun of my computer skillz, just know that I got my first cell phone when I was 19 and I'm working on a laptop made in the 90s. Judge not!
