What is it?
Dan Graham’s model and video works simultaneously celebrate and critically question models of suburban, urban, public and corporate spheres and the relationship between architecture and its psychological effects on us. Graham has been a central figure in contemporary art since the 1960s and continues to impact on thinking and actions where the performance of the artwork constitutes the construction of space.
Graham has made a selection of model and video works following on from his public lecture for Eastside Projects in July 2009, and Models and Videos is part of his ongoing dialogue with the city of Birmingham. Invited to develop a new public work in relation to Birmingham City University’s new campus in Eastside Graham was particularly struck by the old Curzon Street train station and references the neoclassical columns used in the neo-Georgian architecture in a new model for an architectural pavilion for the new City Park.
