Art Basel

David Zwirner is pleased to participate in Art Basel 2021. Highlights at the booth will include works by Josef Albers, Diane Arbus, Lucas Arruda, William Eggleston, Liu Ye, Kerry James Marshall, Oscar Murillo, Bruce Nauman, Alice Neel, Sigmar Polke, and Wolfgang Tillmans, among others.
 
David Zwirner is especially excited to present a major early painting by Robert Ryman. This will be the gallery’s first public presentation of the artist’s work since announcing the exclusive worldwide representation of the Robert Ryman Estate earlier this year. Untitled (c. 1963) is one of the most significant works Ryman made using this distinctive glyph-like, curving brushwork. The painting is also the subject of an online viewing room as part of the Exceptional Works series, available on davidzwirner.com
 
For this year’s edition of Unlimited, David Zwirner will present significant works by four gallery artists: Sherrie Levine’s After Russell Lee: 1–60 (2016), a group of sixty giclée print reproductions of Russell Lee’s influential photographs depicting rural life in Pie Town, New Mexico; Nate Lowman’s Untitled (2013–2015) (co-presented with Massimo De Carlo), a vast canvas map of the United States, the largest and most formally complex of the artist’s map series, with each state stretched on its own shaped canvas that renders the work almost like a jigsaw puzzle; Josh Smith’s Untitled (2020), a frieze-like polyptych comprising six panels depicting empty streetscapes inspired by Smith’s neighborhood as he experienced it during early morning and nighttime walks around a locked-down New York during the 2020 COVID-19 quarantine; and Dan Flavin’s untitled (1974), a site-situational pink barrier work, which was produced for the artist’s solo exhibition at the Museum Boymans-van Beuningen, Rotterdam, in 1975. This work is also the subject of a dedicated Exceptional Works presentation on  davidzwirner.com.
