Dan Graham - Rock / Music Writings


Rock/Music Writings collects New York artist and writer Dan Graham’s influential writings about rock and roll music and its cultural impact. First published in 2009, Rock/Music Writings includes thirteen essays written between 1968 and 1988, most of which were originally printed in small magazines or journals, including ExtensionsFusionREAL LIFE and ZG. Graham was a friend and supporter of many musicians active in the No Wave scene that was centred around New York City in the late ’70s. In addition to collaborating with musicians during this period, Graham created “Rock My Religion,” a video that demonstrates parallels between rock music culture and religious rituals, such as Shaker dances and revivalist meetings.
