Known for his irreverent take on modernism and memorable titles like “Money in Bed” and “Symmetrical Pirate”, Reeder’s work has been shown widely including exhibitions at Saatchi Gallery, Gavin Brown’s enterprise, Daniel Reich Gallery, Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago, Los Angeles Contemporary Exhibitions, Jack Hanley, China Art Objects, and Pat Hearn. His recent projects also include a soon to be completed feature film entitled “Moon Dust”; set 100 years in the future and tells the tragic story of a failing resort located on the moon. He will have a show of new paintings at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago in November 2011.

In addition to his artistic practice, Scott has an active curatorial practice with his brother Tyson Reeder and wife Elysia Borowy-Reeder. The collaboration began in 2002 with the opening of their storefront gallery in Milwaukee, “General Store.” General Store went on to curate the legendary “Drunk vs. Stoned” exhibitions at Gavin Brown’s enterprise, as well as the “Early Show” at White Columns in New York. Their most recent project “Club Nutz, “the world’s smallest comedy club,’” was a special project at Frieze Art Fair in London in 2009 and at the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago. Scott is also a member of Milwaukee International, a five person collective responsible for the “Milwaukee International Art Fair”, hosted at a Polish beer hall/bowling alley in Milwaukee, the “Dark Fair” at the Swiss Institute in NY in 2008 and “Dark Fair- Cologne”, at the Kölnischer Kunstverein in Cologne, Germany in 2009.
