A fan of Mel Brooks and Martin Short, [Dan] Graham is a devotee of punk rock (he played a key role in the formation of the band Sonic Youth) and country music, and an avid follower of pop culture and sports (heís a Mets fan). With the possible exception of his pavilions, however, Grahamís art production has pretty much eluded the commodity-friendly consistency that is so often summoned to develop an artist brand.
Referring to his tendency to combine his diverse interests to arrive at something new, he claimed, "Everything I do is a hybrid. . . . Basically I get bored with what Iím doing and also I donít want to do trademark work."
