Fred Tomaselli explores reality dislocation and the broken dreams of utopianism in colorful, complex works that utilize painting, photo collage, newsprint and unorthodox materials. Recently, he has had a solo show at the Modern Art Museum, Fort Worth Texas and was included in the Adelaide International. In 2010, a 20-year survey of his work originated at the Aspen Art Museum, traveled to the Tang Teaching Museum and ended at the Brooklyn Museum of Art. His work has also been shown at the Museum of Modern Art, The Whitney Museum, and the Los Angeles Museum of Contemporary Art, among others. The most recent book on his work, Fred Tomaselli: The Times, was released the Spring of 2014.
