New Sculptures and Installations
Opening on Wednesday, April 21, the gallery will present an exhibition by the Austrian artist Franz West. This will be the artist's fourth exhibition at David Zwirner.
Franz West has been showing continuously since the mid-1970s. His works were included in large international exhibitions such at Documenta IX & X in Kassel; the Münster Skulptur Projekte; and at the last Venice Biennale. In 1997 his work was shown at the Museum of Modern Art in New York, and a midcareer survey is currently on exhibit at the Rooseum in Sweden. The artist was recently awarded the Wolfgang Hahn prize from the Museum Ludwig in Cologne.
For this exhibition the artist will bring to the gallery three small installations as well as a group of recent sculptures. One of the works, the "Internet Bed", is a large-scale sculpture, which enables the gallery viewers to access and browse the World Wide Web. The artist's current exhibition at the Rooseum can also be visited via the "Internet Bed", as well as the gallery's website, which is to premier in the first week of May.
