Michael Riedel: Frieze (CMYK)


Artist\s book

In 2007, Michael Riedel created a modified version of the contemporary art magazine frieze by altering the commercial four-color printing process. A series of misprints of the May 2007 issue were produced by separating the standardized application of the colors cyan, magenta, yellow, and black which are abbreviated in the industry as CMYK. Riedel’s modifications transformed the journal from a source of information into a limited edition series of artist books.

Michael Riedel

Since the late 1990s, Michael Riedel has advanced his own model of a self-sustaining artistic production, continuously using reproductions as a means to “reintroduce the system of art into the art system.” His 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; these works often accompany and document his exhibitions.
