Solo exhibition | Jordan Wolfson

David Zwirner is pleased to present a new sculptural work by Jordan Wolfson, on view at 525 West 19th Street in New York. The red hair, freckles, and boyish look of Colored sculpture draw associations to such literary and pop cultural characters as Huckleberry Finn, Howdy Doody, and Alfred E. Neuman, the mascot of Mad magazine. This is the artist’s second solo show with the gallery since he joined in 2013. The work is presented in partnership with Sadie Coles HQ, London.

Books on Jordan Wolfson's work are available here.

Solo exhibition | Luc Tuymans: Le Mépris

David Zwirner is pleased to present Le Mépris, an exhibition of new paintings by Luc Tuymans, on view at 533 West 19th Street in New York. This is the artist’s thirteenth solo presentation at the gallery. Taking its title from the 1963 Jean-Luc Godard film Le Mépris (Contempt), the exhibition comprises nine loosely connected paintings that capture, in the artist’s signature muted palette, themes of isolation, melancholy, degradation, and nostalgia, which likewise characterize Godard’s cinematic work.

Books on Luc Tuymans's work are available here.

Solo exhibition | Sigmar Polke: Eine Winterreise

Solo exhibition | Sigmar Polke: Eine Winterreise

David Zwirner is pleased to announce the gallery’s first exhibition dedicated to the work of Sigmar Polke since having announced its representation of the artist’s estate. Curated by Vicente Todolí, the exhibition will take place at the gallery’s 537 West 20th Street location and will present a selection of works by the artist that address an expanded notion of travel. The works in the exhibition will range from playful takes on mass-produced tourist scenery from the 1960s to compositionally layered paintings from the 1980s that offer complex reinterpretations of travel-related themes, Romantic notions of the sublime, and hallucinatory imagery—thereby addressing both outward, physical travel and inner/mental, intellectual journeys.

Books on Sigmar Polke's work are available here.

Forthcoming | Art & Beauty Magazine: Drawings by R. Crumb (limited edition)

Art & Beauty Magazine is also available as a slipcased edition of 400 copies with a bookplate signed and numbered by the artist. One of America’s most celebrated cartoonists, Robert Crumb helped define cartoon and punk subcultures of the 1960s and 1970s with comic strips like Fritz the Cat, Mr. Natural, and Keep on Truckin’. The open sexuality of his work, paired with frequent self-deprecation and a free, almost stream-of-consciousness style, have made Crumb into a global voice and a renowned contemporary artist.

New release | Oscar Murillo: Frequencies

New release | Oscar Murillo: Frequencies

In 2013, Murillo began sending squares of raw canvas to selected schools in over twenty countries around the world, with the sole requirement that they be affixed to desks and illustrated by students. The canvases would stay there for a year and then be re-collected by the artist. Within weeks of their arrival, children from places as disparate as China and Slovenia began to draw, paint, write, and communicate, creating documents of their social and educational experiences. Frequencies catalogues the first year of Murillo's exploration, with intimate photographs of the participants and the project's myriad steps—the arrival of canvases to different schools, the process of wrapping desks, the students at work, and the final products.
