Paintings: Yayoi Kusama – “I Who Have Arrived In Heaven” @ David Zwirner Gallery

By now, you’ve all heard the monumental buzz that this Yayoi Kusama’s exhibition I Who Have Arrived In Heaven has created with lines that exponentially grew from 30-45 mins to 4-6 hours in the course of less than a month. Mind you, art lovers endured near freezing NYC weather to take in the one minute zen experience of being one on one with Kusama’s Souls of Millions of Light Years Away (experienced here) infinity room installation. What many may not have known is that powerhouse gallery David Zwirner gave […]

Openings: Lisa Yuskavage – “New Paintings” @ David Zwirner

AM recently witnessed the return of Lisa Yuskavage to David Zwirner as the New York based artist unveiled a new series of paintings in her third show with the gallery since 2006.

The color palettes she selected were vibrant, rich and diverse which complimented her wide selection of environments well. Ranging from outdoor to indoor settings, the Yuskavage placed her psychologically-charged characters in a variety of situations to draw the viewers into the […]

Signings: Marcel Dzama @ David Zwirner

Openings: Marcel Dzama – “Behind Every Curtain” @ David Zwirner

We recently attended the absolutely packed opening of Marcel Dzama’s latest solo show at David Zwirner, entitled Behind Every Curtain. As promised, the exhibition featured Dzama’s signature watercolor works on paper and dioramas, but also included some amazing life-sized figurative sculptures, as well as sketches and renderings for his movie A Game of Chess. One of  the most captivating pieces of the show was the rotating carousel of metal robot characters, which really captured the whimsy and imagination that make Dzama such a favorite. See […]

Basel Week Miami ’09 – Marcel Dzama

This new piece from Marcel Dzama caught our eye when we stopped by the David Zwirner booth yesterday at the Art Basel press preview.

Not only were these available for sale, it was also a preview for what to expect from Dzama’s show at the Musée d’art contemporain de Montréal early next year in Canada. More images of the pieces as well as the additional back room inventory […]
