JORDAN WOLFSON AT DAVID ZWIRNER, NEW YORK GALLERY

JORDAN WOLFSON AT DAVID ZWIRNER, NEW YORK

Jordan Wolfson's first solo exhibition at David Zwirner stands out for its cohesive vision and striking content. Wolfson's narrative blurs the boundaries between ambiguity and veracity. There is honesty in the offbeat body of work. In his single channel film, Raspberry Poser, the artist's vision fully emerges blending both the surreal and provocative into a narrative that feels strangely relatable. On view through April 19th 2014 at David Zwirner, 533 West 19th Street, New York. Photo and text Juliana Balestin

STAN DOUGLAS at David Zwirner, New York GALLERY

STAN DOUGLAS at David Zwirner, New York

Stan Douglas' new exhibition at David Zwirner features a single channel film recreation of the famed Columbia 30th Street recording studio. Douglas presents a group of musicians improvising together in the studio to create a documentary style fiction of an iconic venue. The artist's presentation allows the film to function as a continuous dialogue between the musicians rather than a fully formed narrative. This practice allows Doulgas to bring together contemporary ideas through a historical lens.  Luanda-Kinshasa is on view through February 22nd 2014 at David Zwirner, 533 West 19th Street, New York.

YAYOI KUSAMA at David Zwirner, New York GALLERY

YAYOI KUSAMA at David Zwirner, New York

David Zwirner's first exhibition with artist Yayoi Kusama is a multiroom experience of color, pattern, reflection and form. Kusama's work merges the surreal and the personal. Mirrored elements through out several bodies of work enhance the dream-like fantasy. Both the artist and viewer engage in the reflective mirrors to distort expectations of continuity and the reality of the world. Elsewhere in the space, Kusama presents a series of medium format paintings with representational passages offset by the artist's obsessive patterns. The organic forms strengthen the cosmic narrative of her mirrored installations. I Who Have Arrived In Heaven is on view through December 21st 2013 at David Zwirner, 525 West 19th Street, New York.
