For his exhibition at Hauser & Wirth Zürich, Graham presents a new series of his signature photographic light box works – elaborate and allegorical compositions focusing on his use of the self-portrait to explore scenarios from our collective cultural memory. These are shown alongside recent paintings and objects that functioned as props in some of the light box works, such as ‘Artist in Artists’ Bar, 1950’s’ (2016). The exhibition precedes the artist’s retrospective at BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art, Gateshead, England in March 2017, subsequently travelling to the Irish Museum of Modern Art, Dublin, Ireland.
