Oscar Murillo: binary function
David Zwirner is pleased to present Oscar Murillo's first exhibition at the gallery in London, which includes new paintings and drawings as well as sculptural, sound, and film elements.
The exhibition's title, binary function, refers to the pairings that permeate Murillo's multifaceted practice. For the artist, the notion of the binary is not oppositional; instead, these pairings work and play against one another to create a dialogue that exceeds individual works.

Known for his large-scale paintings, Oscar Murillo's expanding practice, which includes performance, sculpture, installation, and video, has helped define him as one of the most dynamic artists of his generation. Local in his interest in community and family, but global in his approach to art making, Murillo's creative explorations present us with some of the most pressing questions facing us today: how do communities define themselves, and how can a single individual—an artist—help facilitate communication between them and the larger world?
