David Zwirner presents an exhibition by Josh Smith. The show marks the artist’s inaugural solo presentation with David Zwirner since joining the gallery in 2017. On view in the gallery’s West 19th Street spaces in New York, the exhibition debuts a range of new paintings.
Here, Smith continues to refine and expand on subjects and forms he has explored throughout his career, while also pushing his work into new terrain. The artist views the exhibition as a significant opportunity to lay bare and test what his paintings can do within these new environments. The unique qualities of Smith’s work will be inherently highlighted within the galleries, where the artist’s investigations of scale, color, and compositional resolution will be fully on display.Josh Smith, Turtle, 2019 © Josh Smith.
