(New York, USA)
Founded in 1993 in New York, David Zwirner Gallery celebrates its 25th anniversary this year. To honour the date, the gallery put together “David Zwirner: 25 years”, a special exhibition showcasing the artists who have shaped the gallery’s program in the last quarter of decade.
Almost 60 artists participate in the show (Lucas Arruda being the only Brazilian amongst them), which spreads across all of the gallery’s Chelsea spaces in New York. Works featured include both significant historical pieces as well as new and never-before-seen works specially commissioned for the occasion. The exhibition also features an illustrated catalogue revisiting the nearly 400 exhibitions presented by the gallery since its foundation, with contributions by celebrated art historian Richard Shiff and renowned curator and academic Robert Storr, just to name a few.
The show is not the only way David Zwirner is celebrating its 25th anniversary, though. Later this month, the gallery inaugurates its first Asian space, in Hong Kong, the next step for an expansion plan that already includes three venues in Manhattan and one in London.
