David Zwirner is pleased to announce the gallery's first exhibition dedicated to the work of Sigmar Polke since having announced its representation of the artist's estate. Curated by Vicente Todolí, the exhibition will take place at the gallery's 537 West 20th Street location and will present a selection of works by the artist that address an expanded notion of travel.
German artist Sigmar Polke (1941-2010) is widely recognized for his multidisciplinary output of paintings, photographs, drawings, prints, objects, installations, and films. Characterized by a relentlessly experimental and inquisitive attitude, the artist's work employs unusual materials and techniques, and playfully defies social, political, and aesthetic conventions. Throughout his prolific career, Polke's unorthodox approach to materials, subject matter, and artistic processes was always concerned with the testing of limits and boundaries, and this exhibition will demonstrate the breadth and lasting influence of his radical and innovative practice.

Artist: Sigmar Polke
Published on the occasion of Sigmar Polke: Eine Winterreise—hailed as “a complete knockout” by The New York Times—this volume brings together a rich body of work, ranging from Polke’s mass-produced tourist scenery of the 1960s to the complex and multilayered paintings he made during the 1980s and his double-sided Laterna Magica works from 1988–1996. Published by David Zwirner Books.
"[In] the radiant exhibition currently on display at David Zwirner . . . the gallery’s three large rooms perfectly encapsulate three very different aspects of Sandback’s art."—Thomas Micchelli in Hyperallergic
