See a variety of works from over three decades, highlighting Dan Graham’s groundbreaking endeavors in sculpture and video installation, connecting his friendships with his contemporaries, and focusing on his passion for music and film. Installations include a serial arrangement of music ephemera, comprising CDs of Greatest Hits sent by Graham to Fischli, mimicing highbrow and conceptual art practices. Walk through Adjacent is Hedges and Two Way Mirror Glass Labyrinth (1991), an architectural pavilion shown in dialogue with a series of architectural models spanning the years 1978 to 2003.

An immersive sound component with a playlist, curated by Graham, reveals the artist’s eclectic music tastes, creating a mise-en-scene that is part suburban arcade, part manga video lounge. The show culminates with video works, including Graham’s seminal Rock My Religion (1983-84), juxtaposed with late ‘70s footage of punk concerts from Fischli’s hometown, in PUNK COCKTAIL: Zurich Scene, 1976-89, 2006, as well as a diaristic series of photos taken by Graham’s friend Isa Genzken at rock concerts they attended together in the early ‘80s.
