For an exhibition at the Pérez Art Museum in Miami, David Reed created a new series of works, which were presented for the first time in 2016/17 in the large hall of the house built by Herzog & de Meuron. The four 190 x 460 cm pictures (three landscape formats and one portrait format) will be shown in the summer of 2019 for the first time in Europe together with related drawings. The exhibition at Neues Museum Nuremberg offers a spectacular insight into the current work of David Reed. It focuses on a singular work, which in many ways stands for the artist's thinking and work.
For the four paintings # 658, # 659, # 660 and # 661 David Reed referred back to #212 (1984/85). This older image, which is characterized by rich blues and yellows, exceptionally has a title in addition to the numbering typical for Reed. It is called «Vice», after the legendary American television series «Miami Vice» which was produced between 1984 and 1989 in five seasons.
