Tour

David Reed
New Paintings

Thursday, February 20, 2020, 6pm
Gagosian, 980 Madison Avenue, New York

David Reed and curator Jeffrey Weiss will give a tour of the exhibition David Reed: New Paintings, on view at Gagosian, 980 Madison Avenue, New York, through February 22. The pair will discuss the outsize works in the show, some over a decade in the making, and how they respond to the galleries at 980 Madison Avenue, testing and maximizing their spatial boundaries. Indexically numbered rather than titled, the works are painted in either intense, otherworldly colors or primarily blacks and grays, as if contrasting the delirious possibilities of the full-color moving image with the austerity of grayscale. To attend the free event, RSVP to nytours@gagosian.com. Space is limited.

On View

David Reed in
Given Time

Through February 25, 2023
Milton Resnick and Pat Passlof Foundation, New York
www.resnickpasslof.org

This group exhibition has a starting point in 1991 when Molly Sullivan curated the exhibition Contemporary Abstract Painting: Resnick, Reed, Laufer & Moore for the Muscarelle Museum of Art at the College of William & Mary in Virginia. Her show referenced the tumult of the 1980s art market, the continuing debate over the future of painting, and the impact of the political arena in which artists live. Given Time expands on that exhibition to include artists from a broad spectrum of personal and political influences, as it considers the interim three decades from the Muscarelle show to our present day through a number of lenses. Work by David Reed is included.

Marking Time
Process in Minimal Abstraction

December 18, 2019–August 2, 2020
Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York
www.guggenheim.org

During the 1960s and 1970s, many artists working with abstraction rid their styles of compositional, chromatic, and virtuosic flourishes. As some turned toward such minimal approaches, a singular emphasis on their interaction with materials emerged. The resulting pieces invite viewers to imaginatively reenact aspects of the creative process. Featuring paintings and works on paper, Marking Time explores how drawing attention to the creative process fosters a distinctively empathetic mode of engagement. Work by Brice Marden and David Reed is included.

Frozen Gesture
Gesten in der Malerei

May 18–August 18, 2019
Kunst Museum Winterthur, Switzerland
www.kmw.ch

In 1965 Roy Lichtenstein created his famous Brushstrokes and in doing so highlighted the fundamental elements of the image, such as the appearance of the colors and the pigment, the color fields and their limits, and not least the application of paint in the form of a gesture. This exhibition aims to explore the sheer range of gestures in contemporary painting. Work by Katharina Grosse, Roy Lichtenstein, and David Reed is included.

David Reed
Drawings

May 18–August 18, 2019
Kunst Museum Winterthur, Switzerland
www.kmw.ch

This exhibition includes seven working drawings (comprising forty-four sheets in total) by David Reed, and has been organized in conjunction with the group show Frozen Gesture, which features work by Reed, concurrently on view at the museum. These fascinating works on paper provide unparalleled insight into Reed’s processes in creating large-scale abstract paintings. The drawings serve as a visual diary for each new work: they feature meticulous notes on the experiences and visual cues that inform the works, record decisions made in the painting process, and are illustrated with sketches, diagrams, and color tests.
