The David Zwirner Gallery is an American contemporary art gallery owned by David Zwirner. It has three gallery spaces in New York City and one in London, and has plans to open in Hong Kong.[1]

History[edit]

Zwirner opened his first gallery in 1993 on the ground floor of 43 Greene Street in SoHo in New York City,[citation needed] with a one-man show of the Austrian sculptor Franz West.[2] In 2002, he moved to 525 West 19th Street in the Chelsea neighborhood of New York.[citation needed] In 2012 he opened a London branch in Grafton Street, in Mayfair, and built a large new space – designed by Annabelle Selldorf – at 537 West 20th Street, Chelsea, New York.[3]

In September 2017, David Zwirner Gallery opended an Upper East Side space in a 1907 townhouse re-designed by Selldorf, right off of Madison Avenue.[4] A planned branch at the H Queen’s building in Hong Kong will also be designed by Selldorf.[1][5]

In early 2018, David Zwirner Gallery announced the launch of its fifth location in New York – and its seventh space worldwide – for autumn 2020. The five-story, $50 million Renzo Piano-designed gallery on the corner of West 21st Street is set to become Zwirner’s new headquarters, featuring 50,000 sq. ft of exhibition space as well as souped-up offices and storage facilities.[6]

As of 2018, according to the New York Times, David Zwirner Gallery reports annual revenues of 500 million dollars, with 165 employees and a growing stable of more than 50 artists and estates.[7]

Artists[edit]

The David Zwirner Gallery has at various times exhibited works by Marlene Dumas, Dan Flavin, Donald Judd, Neo Rauch, Jason Rhoades, Luc Tuymans and Doug Wheeler.[1] In 2009–2010, minimalist works by Larry Bell, John McCracken, Fred Sandback and James Turrell were shown.[8]

In 2013 Yayoi Kusama said that she would show at the gallery.[9] In 2016, the gallery showed photographs by William Eggleston.[10]

In early 2018, the Estate of Franz West returned to David Zwirner Gallery 17 years after Weft left the gallery for Gagosian in 2000.[11]
