Luc Tuymans The Shore
30 Jan 2015 – 02 Apr 2015
David Zwirner Gallery
London, United Kingdom
Representing over forty artists and estates, David Zwirner is a contemporary art gallery active in both the primary and secondary markets. Since opening its doors in 1993, it has been home to innovative, singular, and pioneering exhibitions across a variety of media and genres. The gallery has helped foster the careers of some of the most influential artists working today, including Luc Tuymans and Neo Rauch, who had their U.S. debut exhibitions at the gallery (in 1994 and 2000, respectively), and has maintained long-term representation of a wide-ranging, international group of artists. During the 1990s, the gallery began representing Michaël Borremans, Raoul De Keyser, Stan Douglas, Marcel Dzama, On Kawara, Toba Khedoori, Jockum Nordström, Raymond Pettibon, Thomas Ruff, Katy Schimert, Yutaka Sone, Diana Thater, and Christopher Williams.
In October 2012, David Zwirner expanded into Europe. The gallery opened in an 18th-century Georgian townhouse on 24 Grafton Street in the heart of London's Mayfair district with a solo exhibition of new works by Luc Tuymans. After a renovation overseen by architect Annabelle Selldorf of Selldorf Architects, the building has almost 10,000 square feet throughout five floors, with main exhibition spaces on three levels.
