Painting Paintings (David Reed) 1975
In 1975 David Reed exhibited a series of new paintings at Susan Caldwell Gallery, New York, which had a strong impact on Christopher Wool, a young artist at the time. More than forty years later, Wool, along with Katy Siegel, curated an exhibition of Reed’s paintings, complemented by a group exhibition of artists who were similarly exploring the relationship between process and image-making in painting, sculpture, photography, and film. In this video, Wool, Siegel, and Reed discuss the recent exhibition and the works on view.
