Opening on June 27, Zwirner & Wirth will present an exhibition of paintings by Old Master and contemporary artists.  Old School celebrates a re-engagement with Old Master modes of representation, which might be said to be a recent phenomenon in contemporary art.  A younger generation of artists looks to the past in works that re-define and re-contextualize the techniques, themes, and imagery of their art-historical predecessors, and Old School aims to present a dialogue between old and new with a selection of works spanning the 15th to the 21st centuries.
