The first joint exhibition of New York-based artists Mary Heilmann and David Reed, two key figures in American post-Abstract Expressionism, takes place at the Hamburger Bahnhof.
The exhibition, conceived specifically for the Berlin gallery, comprises 40 paintings and installation works created by the artists since the 1970s, a decade in which they both pushed the boundaries of abstraction.
Heilmann has a background in sculpture, and her work references movements such as De Stijl, Constructivism and Minimalism. Reed's work is informed by the colour, cinema and surf of California, as well as exploring the "identity" of painting.
For this exhibition the two artists have united to learn from each other and to seek common ground between their respective artistic positions.
