Tenderpixel hosts a one-day exhibition of paintings from the series Every Day is a Good Day. This is a remarkable series of over 5,000 paintings by Peter Dreher of the same, empty drinking glass, produced since 1974.
Wednesday 5 November 2014, 6.30–8pm
A guided tour of the exhibition by Michael Archer, David Batchelor, Melissa Gordon, Anthony Spira, and Lynne Tillman (on Skype).
Tenderbooks will launch Peter Dreher: Just Painting published by Occasional Papers and MK Gallery. This book brings together, for the first time in English, a selection of texts written about the work of German artist Peter Dreher. These texts identify a broad variety of approaches to Dreher’s work, including realist, formalist, conceptual, psychoanalytical, philosophical and spiritual interpretations of a practice that, as write Lynne Tillman has suggested, addresses the entire ‘history of the problems in painting.’
With essays by Michael Archer, Peter Dreher, Stefan Kraus, Hans Ulrich Obrist, Anthony Spira, Dirk Teuber, Lynne Tillman, Franz Joseph van der Grinten, Beat Wismer and John Yau.
