Art Basel

David Zwirner is pleased to participate in Art Basel for the 19th consecutive year.

 

Artists presented include Tomma Abts, Anni Albers, Josef Albers, Francis Alÿs, Mamma Andersson, Ruth Asawa, Michaël Borremans, Carol Bove, Alberto Burri, Raoul De Keyser, Peter Doig, Marlene Dumas, William Eggleston, Dan Flavin, Suzan Frecon, Isa Genzken, Felix Gonzalez-Torres, Donald Judd, On Kawara, Martin Kippenberger, Yayoi Kusama, Sherrie Levine, Kerry James Marshall, Giorgio Morandi, Bruce Nauman, Alice Neel, Jockum Nordström, Chris Ofili, Palermo, Raymond Pettibon, Sigmar Polke, Neo Rauch, Jason Rhoades, Bridget Riley, Jan Schoonhoven, Al Taylor, Wolfgang Tillmans, Luc Tuymans, Cy Twombly, Günther Uecker, Christopher Williams, Jordan Wolfson, Yun Hyong-keun, and Lisa Yuskavage.

 

The gallery will present Sutter's Mill, an installation by Jason Rhoades, in Art Basel Unlimited (Stand U64).

 

Sutter's Mill (2000) is Rhoades's reconstruction of Gold Rush pioneer John Sutter's still-extant water-powered sawmill in Coloma in California, near the artist's childhood home. Using aluminum pipes from Rhoades's 1999 Perfect World installation at the Deichtorhallen Hamburg, the life-size structure was first presented at David Zwirner in New York in 2000. Per the artist's instructions, the installation in Art Basel Unlimited will be constantly dismantled and rebuilt by trained handlers during the course of the fair. Next to the model of the mill, various items including replacement pipes, protective headgear, and polishing cloths are laid out on wooden stands to indicate that work is always in progress.

 

As the art historian Eva Meyer-Hermann notes, the mill is "a symbol not only of artistic production (signified by the gold), but also of a creative process that in principle will never reach a conclusion and that will also never be available to the recipient in a neatly packaged form." Sutter's Mill was included in the critically acclaimed exhibition Jason Rhoades, Four Roads, which travelled from the Institute of Contemporary Art in Philadelphia to the Kunsthalle Bremen in Germany and the BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art in Gateshead in England in 2013-2015.

TEFAF New York Spring

David Zwirner is pleased to participate in TEFAF in the inaugural New York spring edition of the pre-eminent European art and antiques fair. The gallery will present a selection of works by Anni Albers, Josef Albers, and Ruth Asawa—three artists whose lives and artistic practices found mutual inspiration during the late 1940s as part of the avant-garde community at Black Mountain College.

 

The gallery has held two solo exhibitions of Josef Albers’s work since announcing exclusive worldwide representation of The Josef and Anni Albers Foundation in May 2016: Grey Steps, Grey Scales, Grey Ladders in New York in November 2016, and Sunny Side Up in London in January 2017. Josef Albers (1888-1976) is considered one of the most important abstract painters of the twentieth century. His wife Anni (née Annelise Fleischmann; 1899-1994) is recognized as the most influential textile artist of the period. The two artists met in 1922 at the Bauhaus in Germany, and were married in 1925. After emigrating to the United States in 1933, the Alberses taught at Black Mountain College in North Carolina until 1949. At the fair, the gallery will show drawings, paintings, and studies by both artists, and—for the first time—furniture designed by Josef Albers.

 

David Zwirner announced exclusive representation of the Estate of Ruth Asawa in January 2017. An influential sculptor, devoted activist, and tireless advocate for arts education, Asawa (1926-2013) is best known for her extensive body of hanging wire sculptures, a group of which will be on view in the gallery’s booth. Asawa enrolled at Black Mountain College in 1946, where she absorbed the teachings and influences of the Alberses, Buckminster Fuller, and Merce Cunningham, among others, and embraced her own vocation as an artist. Also on view will be selected sculptures and works on paper by Asawa from this period.

Independent Brussels

David Zwirner is pleased to participate in Independent Brussels for the second consecutive year.

 

Gallery artist Marcel Dzama will curate the booth, which he has titled The Mask Makers. He will present works from the gallery's roster of artists and beyond that relate to the theme of the mask, a prevalent motif within Dzama's own practice that draws on his interest in Surrealist iconography. First appearing as a figurative element in his works on paper in the mid-1990s, and since incorporated into his large-scale drawings, paintings, and films, masks were most recently featured in the artist's critically-acclaimed stage and costume design for the New York City Ballet's The Most Incredible Thing in 2016, a performance choreographed by Justin Peck and based on Hans Christian Andersen's fairy tale.

 

Dzama will create a self-contained environment featuring both historical and new works across several genres, including some made specifically for the space. In addition to his own works, there will be contributions by gallery artists Mamma Andersson, Aline Kominsky-Crumb and R. Crumb, Stan Douglas, Marlene Dumas, Marcel Dzama and Raymond Pettibon, Isa Genzken, Sherrie Levine, Jockum Nordström, Raymond Pettibon, Al Taylor, Wolfgang Tillmans, Lisa Yuskavage and Jordan Wolfson, and works by Hans Accola, David Altmejd, Peter Doig, Thomas Dozol, Mandy El-Sayegh, James Ensor, Kendall Geers, Douglas Gordon, Young Sun Han, Marcel Mariën, Paul McCarthy, Marilyn Minter, Cindy Sherman, John Stezaker, and Rose Wylie.

 

Dzama notes on the theme for the booth: "Be what you want to be, the mask is freedom, anonymity, a new identity or gender, and bridging us to the afterlife."

 

Born in 1974 in Winnipeg, Canada, Marcel Dzama lives in Brooklyn, New York. Since joining David Zwirner in 1998, he has had eight solo exhibitions at the gallery in New York and London, and two exhibitions dedicated to his collaborations with Raymond Pettibon.

Frieze New York

David Zwirner is pleased to present works by Carol Bove and William Eggleston for the gallery's sixth consecutive participation in Frieze New York. Since the fair’s inauguration in 2012—when the gallery exhibited a selection of Minimalist artists, including Dan Flavin, Donald Judd, John McCracken, Fred Sandback, and Sol LeWitt—David Zwirner has focused on solo and two-artist presentations. In 2013, a solo presentation of Thomas Ruff spanned works from 1980 to 1984. Dual presentations in subsequent years were Donald Judd and Yayoi Kusama (2014), John McCracken and Franz West (2015), and Isa Genzken and Lisa Yuskavage (2016).

 

Carol Bove is known for making sculptures that combine both found and made elements. New examples were shown in the recent solo exhibition Polka Dots, her first at the New York gallery, following The Plastic Unit, a 2015 exhibition at David Zwirner in London. She has been chosen to represent Switzerland in the 2017 Venice Biennale.

 

In 2016, David Zwirner announced the exclusive worldwide representation of William Eggleston. The Democratic Forest, his first show at the gallery the same year, presented photographs selected from thousands taken on the artist's travels through America and Europe during the 1980s. His work is currently the subject of two solo museum exhibitions, Los Alamos at FOAM Museum in Amsterdam and William Eggleston: Portraits at the National Gallery of Victoria in Melbourne, which traveled to Australia from the National Portrait Gallery in London.

 

Judd Foundation, which has been represented by David Zwirner since 2010, will be a part of Frieze New York for the first time. Curated by Flavin Judd, the booth (B39) will feature original preparatory drawings from the Judd Foundation Archives in Marfa, Texas, along with select furniture designs and publications, including the recently released Donald Judd Writings (co-published by Judd Foundation and David Zwirner Books).

Art Cologne

David Zwirner is pleased to participate in Art Cologne for the seventh consecutive year. Artists presented include Josef Albers, Carol Bove, Stan Douglas, Marcel Dzama, William Eggleston, Lucio Fontana, Suzan Frecon, Isa Genzken, Richard Hamilton, Yayoi Kusama, Sherrie Levine, Heinz Mack, Oscar Murillo, Sigmar Polke, Neo Rauch, Michael Riedel, Thomas Ruff, Al Taylor, Wolfgang Tillmans, Cy Twombly, Franz West, Christopher Williams, and Jordan Wolfson.

 

In addition to his inclusion in the gallery's presentation, Michael Riedel has been invited to create a work for the fair’s premier commission. Since the late 1990s, Riedel (b. 1972) has advanced his own model of a self-sustaining artistic production, continuously using reproductions as a means to "reintroduce the art system into the system of art which occurs in the art world." He recycles his own material and copies from other artists, highlighting any degradation of information that happens in the process as integral aesthetic by-products. While his practice shares a stylistic affinity with Pop and appropriation art, it represents a departure from the issues of mechanical reproduction that preoccupied earlier generations. Rather, his work embraces the idea of transfer, which is unique to the digital age.

 

For Art Cologne, Riedel will create a site-specific work which intervenes in the architecture of the fair. In the entrance hall, he will stage an installation based on his recording of a meeting in which the fair's committee members determined the galleries that were accepted or rejected from participating in this year's edition. Using a computer program, the artist has created a graphic pattern from the transcription of the recording, isolating the letter L. "By emphasizing and enlarging this letter," he explains, "an automatism gets under way, which defines both the composition of the entire text and the L-shape of the spatial installation."

 

Entitled L, the work comprises wallpaper with the graphic pattern that extends onto the floor and unfolds into an L-shaped booth. By presenting new paintings that feature the context that led to this year's fair, Riedel highlights the binary nature of his forms, which in this case are made out of accepted and rejected gallery applications.

 

L forms part of a series of art fair interventions by the artist that include David Zwirner's booth at Open Space 2006, an alternative venue then operated alongside Art Cologne, Art Statements at Art Basel in 2006, and the Armory Show in New York in 2012.
