Jack Bilbo

David Zwirner is pleased to present an exhibition of works by Jack Bilbo (1907–1967) in the London gallery, organised in collaboration with The Estate of Jack Bilbo and England & Co.

 

Spanning four decades of artistic production, the exhibition will focus on Bilbo's ink drawings from the 1940s, highlighting his unique pairing of imagery with text that is exemplified by I Don't Like Private Capitalism…. Depicting the artist with his characteristic dark beard and pipe, dressed like a vagabond in tattered clothing and drooping top hat, the work is inscribed with "I Don't Like Private Capitalism, I Don't Like State Capitalism–I Do Like My Own Capitalism".
