Leave Yourself Behind:
Paintings and Special Projects 1967-2005
April 2 - June 5, 2005

This exhibition of works by New York artist David Reed documents the continuities and changes evident in a three-decade-long engagement with painting. Beginning with never-before-exhibited landscape paintings from the 1960s, this exhibition traces the development of the painter's distinctive visual language to the present. "Leave Yourself Behind" includes the artist's most recent video and painting project, conceived especially for the Ulrich Museum of Art. A 112-page, color-illustrated catalogue with essays by Richard Shiff and John Yau is available for $15 for museum members $25 for non-members (plus shipping/handling).
