Over the past decade, Michael Riedel’s practice has incorporated a wide range of media and included large-scale works on canvas, fabric works, film and video, audio recordings, installations, and events. A central focus is the production and design of books, catalogues, brochures, posters, and invitation cards. For his forth solo show at David Zwirner, he will present all new silk-screened “PowerPoint” paintings.
