DAVID SCHUTTER in conversation with
+ book presentation:
Saturday, 26 November 2016
The conversation takes place on the occasion of David Schutter‘s current exhibition Gaspard’s Room at Cabinet Aurel Scheibler, Berlin.
David Schutter, born 1974, lives and works in Chicago. David Schutter’s practice is a form of phenomenological study that discusses the distances and problems encountered when making a painting. His works are as much performative re-enactments of specific canonical sources as they are discreet paintings and drawings, and as such form a painter’s repertory of extended rehearsals. These investigations are not homage, but instead a way toward understanding continued expectations that paintings function along historical values.
