Ad Reinhardt: Color Out of Darkness. Curated by James Turrell

Ad Reinhardt: Color Out of Darkness. Curated by James Turrell

Book

The book “Ad Reinhardt: Color Out of Darkness” showcases abstract painter Ad Reinhardt’s geometric, monochromatic “red,” “blue”, and “black” paintings through an immersive exhibition curated by a key figure of the Light and Space movement, James Turrell. The book features installation photographs taken under different lighting conditions, accompanied by responses from contemporary artists, writers, scientists and poets.

The cloth binding and the letterforms reflect the minimal and singular approach of the artist. A subtle foil’s texture lifts the typography from the cloth’s surface. The use of typography and layout on the interior pages creates rhythm and structure.
