Over Memorial Day weekend we saw the Dan Graham: Beyond exhibit at
MOCA Los Angeles. This morning I am happy to learn the show arrives to the Whitney later this month: opening June 25, 2009.

Its a powerful show with work that is inclusive and displacing all at once. My favorite pieces in this retrospective are the transparent, two-way mirrored glass installations. Viewers see reflections of themselves and their surrounds as well as views through the glass. The audience becomes part of the sculpture.
