TedStamm (1944 – 1984), one of the most multi-faceted conceptual artists working in SoHo in downtown Manhattan in the 1970’s and early 80’s. He employed the use of black as a consistent component of his work, a color that he associated with rebellion, rigor and reduction. His inspirations derived from observing everyday objects, experiences and events, such as finding an abstract shape on the street or lines on a baseball field.

In 1977, curator Manfred Schneckenburger included Stamm’s work in Documenta 6 in Kassel, Germany. His work has been exhibited alongside artists, such as Carl Andre, Richard Artschwager, Lynda Benglis, Daniel Buren, James Lee Byars, Mary Corse, Walter De Maria, Sylvie Fleury, Sam Francis, Mary Heilmann, Eva Hesse, Howard Hodgkin, Jacqueline Humphries, Neil Jenney, Donald Judd, Imi Knoebel, Sol Lewitt, Alvin D. Loving, Brice Marden, Gordon Matta-Clark, John McLaughlin, Robert Morris, Olivier Mosset, Isamu Noguchi, Blinky Palermo, Steven Parrino, Howardena Pindell, David Reed, Gerrit Rietveld, Dorothea Rockburne, Susan Rothenberg, Robert Ryman, Fred Sandback, Sean Scully, Richard Serra, Joan Snyder, Pat Steir, Frank Stella, Terry Winters and Stanley Whitney. In addition, Stamm exhibited his work at the legendary Downtown artist-founded venues 112 Greene Street (1975), Artists Space (1975, 1980) and Franklin Furnace (1977, 1980).

Stamm received awards in Painting from the John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation (1983) and the National Endowments for the Arts, NEA (1981–1982).

Stamm’s work is in a number of public collections. The Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum (Ridgefield, CT), Brooklyn Museum (Brooklyn, NY), Carnegie Museum (Pittsburgh, PA), Fondation Louis Vuitton (Paris, France), Guggenheim Museum (New York, NY), Hall Art Collection (Derneburg, Germany; Reading, Vermont), Museum of Contemporary Art MoCA (Los Angeles, CA), Museum of Modern Art MoMA (New York, NY), San Jose Museum of Art (San Jose, California) and Western Australia Art Gallery (Perth, Australia).
