Europeans | David Zwirner
An installation view of the exhibition Europeans, at David Zwirner New York, dated 2000.


Zwirner & Wirth is pleased to present Europeans, a summer group show highlighting some of the most important contemporary artists to emerge from Europe in recent years. Included in the exhibition are two significant 1980s series by German photographers Thomas Ruff and Thomas Struth: Ruff's early series of small portraits of friends and acquaintances, and Struth's stark, black and white images of urban European architecture. In addition, the exhibition presents the Wurst series of color photographs by the artists Fischli & Weiss, a whimsically cinematic and consciously ham-fisted narrative in which sausages, cigarette butts, and pickles inhabit a low-budget landscape of transformed household objects.

Rosemarie Trockel is represented by a well-known knit painting which refers to the signature work of Niele Toroni, along with several of her darkly enigmatic works on paper. Also on view are the quirky sculptures and rare tactile collages of Franz West, as well as a unique collaborative floor sculpture by Thomas Schutte and Richard Deacon. Completing the exhibition are two poetically disquieting paintings, Drops and Lamproom, by the Belgian artist Luc Tuymans, alongside Voodoo Child, a primal and earthy 1996 work on paper by Marlene Dumas.
