Collection As Such
Miles Gertler

Rideout’s expanding body of American Collection Paintings documents the growing economy of collection itself. Alongside a familiar catalogue of modern artworks, his recent canvases are populated by postmodern buildings and interiors designed by the likes of Arquitectonica and Charles Jencks, and objects and furniture authored by Ettore Sottsass and Peter Eisenman. This points to a moment in the 1970s when design began to enter the American art market as a new category for collection, heralded in particular by the first exhibition of architects by Leo Castelli in 1977­.*

Castelli’s show began to establish not only the models, drawings, and other documents of architectural production as valued artifacts, but increasingly also the homes designed and built for collectors, aesthetes, and the “corporate Medici”* in Connecticut, Long Island and other such places within reach of New York. Ada Louise Huxtable’s review of the exhibition in the New York Times observed that “architecture is being perceived as an important art form now, equal to and intricately connected with painting and sculpture …They create their own images; in fact, they create their own worlds.”* Castelli’s gallery was where so many of contemporary painting and sculpture’s biggest names were represented and their output is well represented on the walls of Rideout’s domestic scenarios—several of which embody the architectural milieu of that moment.
