Ourself behind ourself concealed will feature large-scale canvases that extend two of the artist’s ongoing series, manifestation and news, and characterize his studio practice and sustained engagement with process, as well as his continued emphasis on art making as a means of synthesizing sociopolitical contexts. 

This will be Oscar Murillo’s seventh solo presentation with David Zwirner and his third presentation in New York. Opening on April 28, 2022, the show will be on view at 533 West 19th Street until June 4. Currents 121: Oscar Murillo is on view at the Saint Louis Art Museum through August 2022.

Courtney J. Martin became the Paul Mellon director of the Yale Center for British Art in 2019, a decade after earning a PhD in art history from Yale University. An art historian, curator, and professor, Martin began working with the New York–based Dia Art Foundation in 2015 and was appointed deputy director and chief curator in 2017. She previously taught at Brown University and at the Ford Foundation.
