The gallery also represents the Estates of Dan Flavin, Gordon Matta-Clark, John McCracken, Alice Neel, Jason Rhoades, Fred Sandback, and Al Taylor. In October 2010, David Zwirner announced its exclusive representation of Judd Foundation.

 

The gallery’s relocation from SoHo to West 19th Street in New York’s Chelsea district in 2002, and its expansion from 10,000 to 30,000 square feet in 2006, has allowed multiple full-scale exhibitions to be mounted simultaneously. More artists have subsequently joined the gallery, including Adel Abdessemed, Tomma Abts, Francis Alÿs, Karin Mamma Andersson, Carol Bove, R. Crumb, Philip-Lorca diCorcia, Marlene Dumas, Suzan Frecon, Isa Genzken, Chris Ofili, Daniel Richter, Michael Riedel, James Welling, Yan Pei-Ming, and Lisa Yuskavage.

 

David Zwirner focuses on historically relevant work by a diverse and distinctive group of artists. In the primary sector, the gallery covers a broad spectrum of contemporary artistic practice, from seminal Minimalist works to large-scale installation and time-based performances and video work.

 

In the secondary market, the gallery has become known for presenting historically-researched exhibitions and publications devoted to the work of modern and contemporary artists. From 2000 to 2009, David Zwirner was a partner with Iwan Wirth in Zwirner and Wirth, a gallery on New York’s Upper East Side, which focused on private sales. The collaboration yielded a series of significant exhibitions, including Gerhard Richter: Early Paintings (2000); Bruce Nauman (2001); Cy Twombly: Letter of Resignation (2002/2003); Claes Oldenburg: Early Work (2005); David Hammons (2006); Joseph Beuys: Sculpture and Drawing (2007); Dan Flavin: the 1964 Green Gallery exhibition (2008); and Selections from the Collection of Helga and Walther Lauffs (2008). Following the move of David Zwirner’s part of the business to Chelsea, highlights have included Dan Flavin: Series and Progressions (2009), an ambitious survey of the artist’s work in fluorescent light; Edward Kienholz: Roxys, which presented a seminal installation by the artist; and Primary Atmospheres: Works from California 1960-1970, a critically-acclaimed survey of West Coast Minimalism (both 2010).

 

David Zwirner also maintains a complete publishing program, partnering with Steidl, Radius Books, Rizzoli, Abrams, and others, to produce exhibition catalogues, monographs, and artist’s books.
