Ad Reinhardt b. 1913 - d. 1967
On the occasion of the centennial anniversary of Ad Reinhardt’s birth, David Zwirner presented an exhibition of the artist’s work in collaboration with the Ad Reinhardt Foundation. Curated by Robert Storr, this was the gallery’s inaugural exhibition of Reinhardt’s work. The exhibition was on view at the gallery’s 537 West 20th Street location from November to December 2013 and was awarded the "Best Show in a Commercial Space in New York" by the U.S. chapter of the International Association of Art Critics (AICA-USA).
On the occasion of the exhibition, the gallery published Ad Reinhardt How to Look: Art Comics, a fully illustrated catalogue of Reinhardt’s art comics with a new essay by Storr. A major monograph is forthcoming.
