Rodney Graham

Rodney Graham (1949-2022) was an internationally acclaimed Canadian artist. He is known for literary and conceptual artworks, cinematic installations, costume dramas, and also as a singer-songwriter. In the late 1980s and early 1990s, with projects such as "Parsifal Score", "Parsifal (1882-38,969,364,735)", and "School of Velocity", Graham began to make artworks whose central subject was music or the concrete objects of music such as musical scores and CDs. Since then, the line between his visual art practice and his music practice has become blurred and eventually completely conflates in works such as "How I Became a Ramblin Man", "Zabriskie Point" and "The Phonokinetoscope".
