Marlene Dumas: Myths & Mortals at David Zwirner


David Zwirner is pleased to present an exhibition of new work by Marlene Dumas, her second with the gallery and her first solo presentation in New York since 2010. On view at the gallery's 537 West 20th Street location, this exhibition will feature a selection of new paintings that range from monumental nude figures to intimately scaled portraits. Alongside these works, Dumas will debut an expansive series of works on paper originally created for a recent Dutch translation by Hafid Bouazza of William Shakespeare’s narrative poem Venus and Adonis (1593). In these drawings—tender and erotic with hints of violence—the artist renders the story of Venus, the goddess of love, and her tragic passion for the handsome youth Adonis in her singularly expressive ink wash.
