David Zwirner is pleased to present an exhibition of new work by artists from the gallery’s program located at  537 West 20th Street, NYC.

The world has never faced such uncertainty: everything from our understanding of public health and racial injustice to our geopolitical order and our social and environmental responsibilities is being challenged and rethought. 2020 may go down as the watershed year when the deck was reshuffled; and while we don’t know the future, our minds are busy speculating, anxiously rethinking and looking for a vision beyond.

Whatever that vision may be—whether it entails a rebirth or set of new beginnings—artists can help us imagine it, since the work they are doing now may contain the seeds of the future we cannot yet see.
