SAINT LOUIS, MO.- The Saint Louis Art Museum announces the opening of its latest New Media Series installation; Tom Friedman: REAM, an animated film, on November 6.

Artist Tom Friedman's work defies categorization: it encompasses drawing, photography, collage, painting, sculpture, performance, new media and conceptual art. To create REAM, Friedman used a ream (500 sheets) of standard letter-sized paper to create 500 unique drawings that he then animated into a 500-frame film sequence. The animated drawings express his characteristic light tone, reinforced by the speed at which the viewer experiences the drawings.

Friedman was the 1997 Henry L. and Natalie E. Freund Teaching Fellow, which included the Currents 70 exhibition at the Saint Louis Art Museum. A St. Louis native, Friedman lives and works in Western Massachusetts. He is represented by Gagosian Gallery.

The New Media Series features installations by living artists whose work utilizes digital media, engaging the audience through both film and sound. Curated by Charlotte Eyerman, former curator of modern and contemporary art, the exhibition will be on view in Gallery 301 through January 31, 2010.
