Sherrie Levine

David Zwirner is pleased to present an exhibition of new works by Sherrie Levine, on view at 537 West 20th Street in New York. This will be the gallery's first exhibition with the artist since she joined in 2015.

Levine's work engages many of the core tenets of postmodern art, challenging notions of originality, authenticity, and identity. Since the late 1970s, she has created a singular and complex oeuvre using a variety of media, including photography, painting, and sculpture. Many of her works are explicitly appropriated from the modernist canon, while others are more general in their references, assimilating art historical interests and concerns rather than specific objects. Deeply interested in the process of artistic creation and in the contested notion of progress within art history, her work forthrightly acknowledges its existence as the product of what precedes it.
