The gallery is pleased to present Singing the Body Electric, a group exhibition curated by Leo Xu. The show’s title is derived from Walt Whitman’s ecstatic and politically nuanced poem “I Sing the Body Electric” from Leaves of Grass (1855). The exhibition includes work from across various media that likewise celebrates and complicates themes of the body and desire, while exploring physicality and identity in the context of the synthetic and alienating nature of a highly digitized world.
David Zwirner is a contemporary art gallery in New York, London and Hong Kong, which currently represents over 50 artists and estates and has well over 100 staff members. Since opening its doors 25 years ago, it has been home to innovative, singular, and pioneering exhibitions across a variety of media and genres. Active in both the primary and secondary markets, the gallery has helped foster the careers of some of the most influential artists working today, and has maintained long-term representation of a wide-ranging, international group of artists. As David Zwirner’s first outpost in Asia, the Hong Kong gallery will open on 27 January 2018 with solo exhibition by Belgium artist Michaël Borremans.
