David Zwirner Gallery in Manhattan is an architectural delight on the outside, and houses a number of the modern masters inside.
David Zwirner—one of America’s most influential dealers of contemporary art—has two galleries in New York City’s Chelsea neighborhood and another one in London’s Mayfair district. The building that houses the 20th street gallery was designed by Selldorf Architects to exacting environmental standards and built in 2013. It succeeds in gesturing toward the industrial history of its surroundings, while still appearing elegant and sleek. Zwirner’s other Manhattan gallery is nearby, on 19th street, and maintains this same sleek industrial feel.
Inside, exhibitions showcasing some of the more than 50 contemporary American artists and estates Zwirner represents are open to the public. The gallery is home to a number of highly regarded artists—Jeff Koons, Yayoi Kusama and William Eggleston among them—and an afternoon spent there will stimulate and delight.
