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 email@example.com. Space is limited.
