“25 Years of David Zwirner Gallery and The Artists Who Shaped It”

‘Art Exhibitions’

By Andreja Velimirović


On the occasion of the venue’s 25th anniversary, David Zwirner Gallery will present a special exhibition rich with content that will celebrate all the artists who shaped its last quarter century.

David Zwirner: 25 Years will offer the public an opportunity to observe and analyze the venue’s rich history.

The show will feature all the key artworks as the highlights of the gallery’s program since its founding in 1993 and it will emphasize just how important long-term dedication really is in the world of art.

A Long Time of Excellence

Since officially opening its doors at 43 Greene Street in 1993, David Zwirner Gallery tirelessly and patiently established a reputation of holding ambitious exhibitions guided by an artist-centric ethos. Now, Zwirner’s galleries are considered to be a true elite of the art world and it’s very interesting to see the way they progressed over the years.

In 2002, the gallery relocated from SoHo to West 19th Street before the decision to expand to Europe was made in 2012 – the result was a venue in London’s Mayfair district where a gallery was placed in an eighteenth-century Georgian townhouse at 24 Grafton Street. In February 2013, their New York location was expanded when the gallery space received a new five-story exhibition space at 537 West 20th Street.

In September 2017, a new space was opened at 34 East 69th Street on Manhattan’s Upper East Side, a location that was intended for special projects and focused historical exhibitions.

Furthermore, in January 2018, David Zwirner will inaugurate its first gallery in Asia when a new studio will be opened in the H Queen’s building in Central Hong Kong.

David Zwirner: 25 Years

David Zwirner: 25 Years will be a show that will take place simultaneously at all of gallery’s Chelsea spaces in The Big Apple (519, 525 & 533 West 19th Street and 537 West 20th Street). The exhibition will feature artworks by the gallery’s most crucial artists that directly shaped the reputation David Zwirner’s galleries enjoy today.

David Zwirner: 25 Years will present significant historical works that influenced the gallery’s history, but will also feature new and never-before-seen pieces commissioned specially for this occasion.

The exhibition is envisioned to be the evidence of how a contemporary gallery can enjoy a significant and prolonged commercial success by staying true to the same formula up-and-coming galleries turn to when trying to make a name for themselves – staying true to their extraordinary artists.

Displaying this long-term commitment to artists and their ideas will be the central block of the David Zwirner: 25 Years show.

Celebrating Two and a Half Decades of David Zwirner Gallery

David Zwirner: 25 Years will be accompanied by an illustrated catalogue that will take the readers for a journey of revisiting nearly 400 exhibitions that were presented by the gallery since 1993. This publication was made with contributions by celebrated art historian Richard Shiff, renowned curator and academic Robert Storr, as well as David Zwirner himself.

The David Zwirner: 25 Years show will be taking place from the 13th of January to the 17th of February 2018 at all of the David Zwirner Gallery’s Chelsea spaces in New York City.

Got Something To Say:

Your email address will not be published.

I was wondering if you ever considered changing the layout of your blog?
Its very well written; I love what youve got
to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with
it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for
only having one or two images. Maybe you could space it out better?

Does your site have a contact page? I’m having problems locating it but, I’d like to send you
an email. I’ve got some recommendations for your blog you might be interested in hearing.
Either way, great site and I look forward to seeing it improve over time.

Excellent post. I used to be checking continuously this blog and I am inspired!
Extremely useful info specifically the final part 🙂 I care
for such info much. I used to be looking for this certain information for
a very lengthy time. Thank you and best of luck.

This design is wicked! You most certainly know how to keep a reader amused.
Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved to start my own blog (well,
almost…HaHa!) Wonderful job. I really loved what you had to say, and more than that, how you presented it.
Too cool!

Today, I went to the beach with my kids. I found a sea shell and gave
it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She placed
the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and
it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back!

LoL I know this is totally off topic but I had to tell someone!

It’s perfect time to make some plans for the future and it is time to be happy.
I’ve read this post and if I could I desire to suggest you some interesting things or advice.
Perhaps you could write next articles referring to this article.

My brother suggested I may like this website. He was entirely right.
This submit truly made my day. You cann’t
believe just how much time I had spent for this
information! Thank you!

You really make it appear really easy along with your presentation but
I to find this matter to be really one thing which
I think I’d never understand. It kind of
feels too complicated and very extensive for me.
I am having a look forward in your next post, I will attempt to get the
hold of it!
