Opening Night: Michael Reeder: DEADRINGER
New York, New York
Los Angeles based artist and muralist Michael Reeder held a solo exhibition at Hashimoto Contemporary entitled DEADRINGER. The show exhibited all new works that explore the themes of self-identity and ego.
About the exhibition, Reeder states, “I wanted to focus on how similar we as humans are regardless of our external differences and how desperately we attempt to stand apart in society. We are all composed of distinct experiences, backgrounds, cultures, fashion styles, careers, etc. yet it is all individually mashed up into a dead ringer, almost carbon copied vessels - the human body. This concept is the underlying premise of DEADRINGER.”
Fans lined up an hour before the opening for a chance to meet the artist and obtain a print signed and numbered (ed. 100) by the artist. Collectors looking to purchase original arts on Saturday were out of luck as the pieces ranging in price from $1,000 to $15,000 were all pre-sold prior to the event.
The exhibition will be on view through Saturday, December 22, 2018
