“For Publication reproduces a series of Dan Graham’s projects carried out between 1965 and 1969 that both drew from and were made to be inserted into the mass media. His Schema deal with quantifying linguistic and stylistic information from magazine articles; Detumescence was one of many projects that Graham deployed in paid advertising space of various magazines, as was Dan Graham Inc. and Likes: A Computer-Astrological Dating-Placement Service. Income Piece and the proposal for Aspen Magazine are reproduced as is Homes For America, originally published in Arts Magazine from Dec 1966-Jan 1967. In a section on Information, Graham situates his data-organization practices in the context of Ramon Lull, Borges, Marshall McLuhan, Mallarmé and Roy Lichtenstein.”
