”Marcel Dzama (Winnipeg, Canada, 1974) gallery artist since 2010, presents his third exhibition. The title of this new exhibition – It’s Time – is a warning about the times we live in. The concept of the exhibition is connected to the theoretical, political and social principles developed by the dada movement conceived by Francis Picabia and Tristan Tzara – among others – as a reaction to World War I and Francisco de Goya’s Disasters of War, which reflect the cruelty of the Spanish war of Independence.
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.

Extract from La Casa Encendida’s press text:
The newly founded Art Berlin is a partnership between ABC (Art Berlin Contemporary) and Art Cologne. As a further evolution of ABC, the art fair takes place for the first time in September 2017. Art Berlin presents around 110 international galleries from 16 countries at Station at Gleisdreieck. In addition to emerging as well as established galleries focusing on contemporary art, one will also be able to discover modern art.
It was in 1996 that collectors Florence and Daniel Guerlain created their contemporary art foundation at Mesnuls, southwest of Paris, which staged thematic exhibitions and organised engraving workshops. In 2004, their interests changed and their support was redirected to promoting contemporary drawing. In 2006 they established a prize that was awarded for the first time the following year. The biggest prize awarded for contemporary drawing, this year it celebrated its tenth anniversary.
We have the pleasure to present Marcel Dzama’s fifth solo exhibition at the gallery. Revolution Blues will comprise of new works on paper, sculptures, collages and film.
Drawing is the foundation of Dzama’s artistry. He got his breakthrough as a young artist with his distinctive colored drawings in saturated shades, self-made fables and a surreal drama and black humor. An image world that could be taken from a fictitious United States, influenced by early superhero comics, science fiction and early Hollywood.
David Zwirner is pleased to present Let us compare mythologies, an exhibition of collaborative works by Marcel Dzama and Raymond Pettibon, two artists who have both been represented by the gallery since the mid-1990s. On view at THE UPPER ROOM at the gallery’s London location, this presentation follows their show earlier this year, titled Forgetting the Hand, at David Zwirner, New York.
David Zwirner is pleased to present an exhibition of collaborative works by Marcel Dzama and Raymond Pettibon, on view at 533 West 19th Street in New York. Gallery artists since 1998 and 1995 respectively, this is the first time the pair has worked together. The drawings were originally created for a zine published by David Zwirner Books to coincide with Printed Matter’s New York Art Book Fair at MoMA PS1 (September 2015).
Donation Florence & Daniel Guerlain, Centre Pompidou, Paris
Florence and Daniel Guerlain have dedicated much of their lives to art. They have been building a large art collection with works by contemporary artists since the 1990s. In 2013, the couple donated 1,200 drawings to the Centre Pompidou art museum in Paris.
The month of November will be enlightened by five artists from Northern Europe and Canada : using different medias, such as drawing, collage, engraving or textile design, each in their own way bring forth a peculiar world, criss-crossed by a nordic sensitivity. Natural and urban environment, relationship and communication are reccurrent themes in their work.
David Zwirner is pleased to present an exhibition of recent and new work by Marcel Dzama, on view at the gallery’s 525 and 533 West 19th Street spaces in New York.

The recognized Canadian artist Marcel Dzama presents his second exhibition in Galería Helga de Alvear titled A Trickster Made this World. His traditional ink drawings –this time on piano scroll-, paper mache buffoons heads, colourful puppets and his new piece of videoart Une Danse Des Bouffons (2013) construct the exhibition. A Trickster made this world takes its title from the famous book of Lewis Hyde, who brings to life the playful and disruptive side of human imagination as it is embodied in trickster mythology.

This exhibition will feature six new TIFF-commissioned artworks by leading Canadian and international contemporary artists who share David Cronenberg's inspirations from literature and philosophy—writers such as McLuhan, Burroughs and Ballard—and his fascination with biological horror, the human psyche and the merging of humans and media.
