David Zwirner is pleased to announce the launch of Dialogues: The David Zwirner Podcast, an audio series dedicated to bringing together two extraordinary artists or cultural leaders from the worlds of art, architecture, film, and music. Each unique pairing will explore how art shapes, elevates, and shifts our point of view, and discuss the often surprising twists and turns of the creative process. The biweekly podcast launches today, June 27, 2018, with a conversation between artist Jeff Koons and Luke Syson, Iris and B. Gerald Cantor Chairman of European Sculpture and Decorative Arts at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York. Their far-ranging discussion touches on evolution and reality TV; polychromy and Pop culture; Plato’s cave and the iPhone.
Future episodes will include: Stan Douglas and Jason Moran; Rose Wylie and Russell Tovey; Lisa Yuskavage and Tamara Jenkins; and Marcel Dzama and Will Butler. The series is hosted by Lucas Zwirner, Editorial Director of David Zwirner Books.
Produced in partnership with Slate Studios, Dialogues: The David Zwirner Podcast is the latest installment in a series of initiatives celebrating the gallery’s twenty-fifth anniversary, which launched in January 2018 with a multi-gallery retrospective in New York and the opening of David Zwirner Hong Kong. “While this year marks an important milestone for the gallery, we continue to look and move forward, whether it be opening a new gallery or exploring new mediums,” says David Zwirner. “This is one of the many digital initiatives we are embarking on, to both engage with new audiences and further our artists’ voices.”
“Everything that happens at the gallery comes out of conversation—conversations that we have with artists, and conversations that artists have with one another,” says Lucas Zwirner. “We’re excited to be sharing these fruitful exchanges beyond the gallery walls with the launch of Dialogues, where some of the most incredible makers and thinkers working today will share insights and discuss their respective ways of thinking and working.”
Dialogues: The David Zwirner Podcast is available on Apple Podcasts, Google Play Music, Stitcher, and most major podcast applications. #DZDialogues
