Nate Lowman: Let’s Go
David Zwirner is pleased to present an exhibition of new paintings by Nate Lowman (b. 1979) at the gallery’s 533 West 19th Street location in New York.
Lowman has become known for deftly mining images culled from art history, the news, and popular media, transforming visual signifiers from these distinct sources into a diverse body of paintings, sculptures, and installations. Since the early 2000s, the artist has continually pushed the boundaries of his multimedia approach with works that are at turns critical, humorous, political, and poetic. In his work, Lowman stages an encounter with commonplace, universally recognizable motifs, questioning and revisiting their intended meanings while creating new narratives in the process.
On view will be new large-scale paintings that depict “false color” satellite renderings of hurricanes which have struck the United States in recent decades with increasing frequency and devastation, continuing the artist’s ongoing interest in this imagery. The exhibition will also feature a selection of canvases that employ disparate mundane media and personal iconography from the artist’s wide-ranging visual archive.
This will be Lowman’s first show in New York with the gallery since having announced representation of the artist in 2019; his first exhibition with David Zwirner was held that year at the gallery’s London location.
