Art In America

Scott Reeder

at Lisa Cooley,
107 Norfolk St.

Scott Reeder's simultaneously smart and joke-heavy show, his first with Lisa Cooley, incorporates materials as diverse as food (spaghetti strands and the kind of little letters found in alphabet soup), powder-coated while aluminum (made to look like oversize crumpled up wads of paper) and neon (giving Reeder's phone number). In the gallery's back room is one of Reeder's harsh-but-hilarious paintings in the form of a long list of Alternate Titles for Recent Exhibitions I've Seen (examples: Believe It Or Not, I Own A Computer; Fluxus Redone But Not Mentioned; Post Good).
