Marcel Dzama

Behind Every Curtain

David Zwirner is pleased to present a solo exhibition of new work by Marcel Dzama, on view at the gallery’s 525 West 19th Street space. The exhibition will feature the artist's film, A Game of Chess, alongside related drawings, sculptures, and dioramas.

Dzama has become known for his prolific drawings, which are characterized by their distinctive palette of muted browns, grays, greens, and reds. In recent years, the artist has expanded his practice to encompass three-dimensional work and film and has developed an immediately recognizable language that draws from a diverse range of references and artistic influences, including Dada and Marcel Duchamp.
