548 West 22nd Street
New York, NY

Dan Graham joins avant-garde composer and musician Glenn Branca for a conversation about past collaborations, rock music, and shared interests working in New York City. This evening also includes a screening of Westkunst (Modern Period): Dan Graham Segment (1980) by Dan Graham and Ernst Mitzka.

This program will take place at X Initiative, 548 West 22nd Street. This is a free event. No reservations. Space is limited; first-come, first-seated.

This event is part of “My Turn,” a series of public programs held in conjunction with the exhibition “Dan Graham: Beyond.”

“My Turn” expands the definition of a museum program by inviting a guest artist to interpret another artist’s work. This unique public program series is organized by guest curator and artist Howie Chen. Taking the exhibition as a point of departure, Chen approaches Dan Graham’s work through musicians, filmmakers, and performers to provide a new and insightful look at an artist who has been influential since the 1960s.
