Second Primary

Works by Macon Reed and Daniel Luedtke

“Nervous gender,
nervous life,
goin’ down to Circuit City
going to have some fun,
two borgs for every borg.”
– Lyrics by Gay Beast

“Hey listen, I’m more than a fool,
you don’t even have to buy me presents,
we don’t have to kiss,
you don’t even have to mention filthy sweet things,
I’ll pay for your drugs,
hey, I’ll even buy you a sex-date,
but please keep me near you,
’cause people like you make me sick.”
– Lyrics by Nervous Gender

For 3433’s latest exhibition, Second Primary, Macon Reed and Daniel Luedtke present works that are attracted toward processes of collecting a life of intersectional political histories and coded behaviors of sex, form, color and performative intimacies.

Luedtke’s pictorial objects and Reed’s gouache drawings-sculptures suture a connection between formal abstraction and recognitions of difference. These incomplete and additive series are concerned with the accrual of meaning from disparate bodies, discarded modernisms, and incomplete sources within a lateral and sequential viewing.

Daniel Luedtke is a self-taught printmaker / artist / musician from Minneapolis MN. His brightly colored, graphicly bold prints utelize geometric abstraction paired with ubsurdist figurative elements that are often inspired by feminist politics, folk art, and kitsch. He got his start printing posters for his band Gay Beast back in 2006 and has since gotten many poster, packaging, and merchandise commissions. After completing a few printmaking residencies in 2008 and 2009 his focus has tended more toward fine-art printmaking, creating larger prints and installations for shows both in the u.s. and abroad.
