Ad Reinhardt

On the occasion of the centennial anniversary of Ad Reinhardt's birth, David Zwirner is pleased to announce an exhibition of the artist's work in collaboration with the Ad Reinhardt Foundation. Organized by curator Robert Storr, this will be the gallery's inaugural exhibition of Reinhardt's work

Comprised entirely of works on loan from public and private collections, this exhibition will include the first room of Reinhardt's "ultimate" black paintings to be seen in New York since the 1991 retrospective at The Museum of Modern Art, New York. Reinhardt describes these paintings as: "A square (neutral, shapeless) canvas, five feet wide, five feet high, as high as a man, as wide as a man's outstretched arms (not large, not small, sizeless), trisected (no composition), one horizontal form negating one vertical form (formless, no top, no bottom, directionless), three (more or less) dark (lightless) no-contrasting (colorless) colors, brushwork brushed out to remove brushwork, a matte, flat, free-hand, painted surface (glossless, textureless, non-linear, no hard-edge, no soft edge) which does not reflect its surroundings—a pure, abstract, non-objective, timeless, spaceless, changeless, relationless, disinterested painting—an object that is self-conscious (no unconsciousness) ideal, transcendent, aware of no thing but art (absolutely no anti-art)."
