This monograph on the diverse art of Chicago-based Scott Reeder (born 1970) addresses the entirety of Reeder’s work and his role in the American art scene since his emergence in the 1990s and his first exhibition with Pat Hearn. Reeder is something of an artist’s artist, and accordingly this volume features contributions from fellow artists Amanda Ross Ho, David Robbins and Trevor Shimizu, and a discussion between Reeder and Laura Owens, as well as curatorial and critical perspectives lent by Terry R. Myers and Kelly Taxter. Finally, Reeder answers questions from friends and peers as part of Matthew Higgs' 20 Questions interview series. This book covers a broad range of Reeder’s work spanning the past 20 years, focusing on his paintings, his feature-length film Moon Dust (2014) and ongoing projects undertaken with his brother Tyson and wife Elysia Borowy-Reeder, such as Club Nutz (a collaborative performance series), General Store (a Milwaukee storefront gallery) and the Dark Fair (a subversive traveling art fair staged in dark spaces).
