David Zwirner is pleased to celebrate fifteen years with an anniversary exhibition, titled The Gallery. Highlighting the evolution of David Zwirner, the exhibition presents early and recent work by all of the artists represented and is the first to span the entire gallery, uniting 519, 525, and 533 West 19th Street.
David Zwirner opened its doors in February 1993 on the ground floor of 43 Greene Street in SoHo. Marked by pioneering exhibitions with Stan Douglas, Jason Rhoades, Toba Khedoori, Rachel Khedoori, and Diana Thater, the early years established David Zwirner as a home for innovative, emerging artists working across media. Over the years, the gallery has helped foster the careers of some of the most influential artists working today, including Luc Tuymans and Neo Rauch, who both had their U.S. debut exhibitions at David Zwirner in 1994 and 2000 respectively. During its time in SoHo, the following artists joined the gallery: Michaël Borremans, Raoul De Keyser, Marcel Dzama, On Kawara, The Estate of Gordon Matta-Clark, John McCracken, Jockum Nordström, Raymond Pettibon, Daniel Richter, Thomas Ruff, Katy Schimert, Yutaka Sone, and Christopher Williams.
