Dan Graham's artworks and critical writings have had an enormous influence on the course of contemporary art over the past quarter century. Rock My Religion collects eighteen of Graham's essays from all periods of his work, beginning with his essays on minimalist artists such as Dan Flavin and Donald Judd, continuing with his writings on punk rock and popular culture, and concluding with his more recent considerations of architecture, urban space, and power. Alternating with these theoretical essays are descriptions and documentations of Graham's own works and installations.
"You don't need to be a fan of Dan Graham's work to get somethingfrom this book. You don't even have to know who Dan Grahamis. . . . Graham looks at contemporary social practices from somepretty unusual perspectives, the combination of which feels like anintellectual carnival." —Christina Ritchie, Artpaper
