Red Grooms

Grooms’s treatment of New York City and Tennessee provides the focus for Red Grooms: Traveling Correspondent. The distinct bodies of work reflect time spent in these radically different environments, specifically those that most define him as a person and an artist.

The exhibition includes approximately 50 examples of Grooms’s signature three-dimensional paintings, sculptures, installations, prints, and films, spanning 1961 to 2015, and thereby provides an excellent overview of his artistic production. The accompanying catalogue will include three scholarly essays and full-color reproductions of all the works in the exhibition.
