Opening on Wednesday, June 10th, the gallery will present a collaboration between Franz West and Heimo Zobernig. In 1997 Franz West and Heimo Zobernig created the Documenta Caf_ for Documenta X, curated by Catherine David. Now the Cafe is augmented by a Bar, which was shown earlier this year at the Fundaçao de Serralves in Oporto, Portugal. The Bar will turn the gallery into a space where World Cup '98 games are being screened daily.
We are pleased to announce the opening of David Zwirner, a gallery located on the ground floor of 43 Greene Street in lower Soho. The gallery will focus on contemporary and emerging artists from the United States as well as from Europe. We will open on February 5, 1993 with an exhibition of new work by the Austrian artist FRANZ WEST. During the remainder of this season we will exhibit works by STAN DOUGLAS, ANGELA BULLOCH, KEVIN LANDERS and FRED EINHORN; as well as a special project by RAYMOND PETTIBON.
The gallery's inaugural exhibition will feature new work by FRANZ WEST. In this show, the artist's first one-person exhibition in the United States since his "Possibilities" show at the P.S.1 Museum in June 1989, FRANZ WEST will exhibit a series of new sculptures and an installation which includes a video made in collaboration with the Austrian film-maker BERNARD RIFF.
