Pérez Art Museum Miami, US
Opening: Thrusday, December 1, 2016, 7:30 pm
Exhibition until May 21, 2017

Opening in December during Art Basel Miami Beach, PAMM will present an exhibition of the work of New York-based painter David Reed.

For the museum he is creating a new series of works inspired by a painting he created in 1984, titled #212. This painting presents highly saturated blues and yellows that for the artist were drawn from similar strong colors used in the 1980s TV series »Miami Vice«. Reed will revisit the colors and forms in this decades-old work and create a series of 4 new large-scale paintings, inspired by #212, which will play with the scale and proportions of the architecture of the museum gallery in which they will be exhibited. He will also present several televisions in the space, showing scenes from the »Miami Vice«, into which he will have digitally inserted the painting #212. The exhibition will also include his meticulous preparatory drawings for the new paintings, executed on graph paper, where he documents each step in creating these abstractions, which recall architectural maquette or engineer’s drawing.
