Nate Lowman: October 7, 2017
October 3—November 9, 2019
On view at David Zwirner’s London location will be a solo exhibition of new paintings by Nate Lowman. This show will mark the artist’s debut presentation with the gallery since joining our roster, this spring.
The exhibition will feature a new series of works by the artist based on perfunctory crime scene photos of the 2017 Las Vegas shooting, in which a gunman attacked civilians attending the Route 91 Harvest Festival, resulting in fifty-nine deaths. By focusing on these images and rendering their details, in his new works Lowman re-presents disquietingly mundane scenes that simultaneously reveal and mask the violent context of his source imagery. By raising questions about the communicability of certain images and insisting on their visibility, these works probe the tensions between the everyday and the extreme, presence and absence, and, more broadly, violence and representation.

(New York, London & Hong Kong — May 24, 2019) David Zwirner is pleased to announce the representation of American artist Nate Lowman.
The gallery is planning a solo exhibition for fall 2019 in London, where the artist will debut a new series of paintings. This will be the first show of Lowman's work in London since his 2016 exhibition at Massimo De Carlo, who will continue to work with the artist.
As stated by David Zwirner, "The gallery is excited to represent Nate Lowman, an artist whose career I have been following with interest for many years. His critical engagement with contemporary culture as much as with art history is evident in his strikingly relevant works. We are so thrilled to be able to share his newest body of paintings in his upcoming solo exhibition with us in London."
