Texts by Richard Shiff and Robert Storr
Published on the occasion of the twenty-five year anniversary at David Zwirner, this book paints a picture of the gallery’s growth and development through the lens of the artists that have shaped it.
Above all else, David Zwirner has been guided by its artist-centric ethos. In ambitious gallery shows at every location, the gallery’s emphasis has been on artists and facilitating their vision. With archival imagery from the very early days of the gallery on Greene Street in SoHo, to its transition and expansion to Chelsea, London, and the Upper East Side, the catalogue captures the gallery’s devotion to its inimitable roster of artists and estates.
Featuring exhibitions and artworks by every artist and estate represented by the gallery, the selection in these pages highlights the countless works that ended up in major museum collections around the world. These works are complemented by a selection of installation views of numerous stand-out shows, in many cases handpicked by David Zwirner himself.
With contributions by celebrated art historian Richard Shiff, world-renowned curator and academic Robert Storr, as well as David Zwirner himself, this publication offers rare insights into the growth of a commercial gallery through its long-term commitment to artists.
