Ruth Asawa Through Line, opening at the Whitney Museum of American Art on September 16, 2023, spotlights the work of groundbreaking artist Ruth Asawa (1926–2013). Known broadly for her rhythmic looped-wire sculptures, Asawa dedicated herself to daily drawing exercises, which served as the connective tissue―or through line―of her creative process and fueled her commitment to art. Through drawing, Asawa explored her surroundings and turned everyday encounters into moments of profound beauty, endowing ordinary objects with new aesthetic possibilities.
David Zwirner will present four exhibitions, each opening on November 4th in its Chelsea locations. Ruth Asawa: All Is Possible at 537 West 20th Street; Seen in the Mirror: Things from the Cartin Collection at 537 West 20th Street; Neo Rauch: The Signpost at 533 West 19th Street; and Portia Zvavahera: Ndakaoneswa marimba at 525 West 19th Street.
