A Practice for Everyday Life

Dan Graham’s work encompasses performance art, video, sculpture, installations, and photography. In recent years, he has perhaps been best known for his Pavilions: installations that occupy the intersection between art and architecture, which have been commissioned for and realised within public spaces around the world. Published on the occasion of an exhibition of these pavilions at Lisson Gallery, Not Yet Realised displays the artist’s sketches and plans for as-yet-unfinished works, including paper scraps from sketchbooks alongside annotated architectural drawings and more resolved imagery. The book respectfully reproduces these scraps and snippets, without attempting to sanitise or finesse their unfinished edges, and the broad borders and generous use of space within the layout echo the way in which Graham’s finished works are exhibited in the gallery.
