Katherine Bernhardt: Why is a mushroom growing in my shower?

David Zwirner is pleased to present its first exhibition with American painter Katherine Bernhardt (b. 1975) since announcing representation of the St. Louis–based artist in 2021. Taking place at the gallery’s London location, the exhibition will feature new large-scale paintings that include motifs from Bernhardt’s unique visual lexicon, which culls from an irreverent American pop vernacular as well as her own life and the broader culture. These works crackle with electrifying colour and the artist’s lively brushwork, and feature familiar imagery such as the Pink Panther, Garfield, and E.T., in addition to fresh subjects like Ditto from Pokémon, Crocs shoes, psilocybin mushrooms, and bathroom showers.

This will be Bernhardt’s first solo presentation in London since 2015. To coincide with the exhibition, the gallery will launch an online viewing room with associated works on paper.
