What the Gallery Says: “On the occasion of the gallery’s 25th anniversary, David Zwirner will present a special exhibition celebrating the artists who have shaped the gallery’s program since its founding in 1993. On view across all of the gallery’s Chelsea spaces in New York (519, 525 & 533 West 19th Street and 537 West 20th Street), the exhibition will feature artworks by the gallery’s artists, including significant historical work, alongside new and never-before-seen works commissioned specially for the occasion.”

Why It’s Worth a Look: To mark the quarter-century anniversary of his art world empire, David Zwirner has culled a museum-worthy, sprawling show. Across the four locations, works by 58 internationally-renown artists including famous figures like Jason Rhoades, Alice Neel, Kerry James Marshall, and Wolfgang Tillmans, are a testament to the impressive range and depth of the gallery’s program.
