This Thursday, 6-8 PM, David Zwirner London opens “Bridget Riley: Recent Paintings 2014-2017.” From the early 1960s, the British artist has used elementary shapes such as lines, circles, curves, and squares to create visual experiences that actively engage the viewer, at times triggering optical sensations of vibration and movement.

#TBT In honor of the anniversary exhibition #DZ25Years, opening across our Chelsea galleries this Saturday, 6-8 PM, we’ve asked our staff members to take a look back at some of the shows and events that have inspired them. Sales Associate Julia Mechtler (@jmechtler), who has been with the gallery since 2011, remembers the high-spirited 2014 opening of “Oscar Murillo: A Mercantile Novel.”

“It was our first exhibition with Oscar and everyone was really excited to see what he would show at the gallery. Most people assumed that he would do a traditional painting show but instead he installed a functioning candy-making factory in the gallery, bringing over workers from the Colombian candy manufacturer Colombina, which was founded in Murillo’s hometown.

“The day of the opening was really warm. We had the garage doors open, and the entire street was packed with people, and so was the gallery. Later on, rather than throwing a dinner, we had a party in the exhibition space. The factory workers just started dancing and everybody followed. It lasted the whole night. This was one of the most fun openings we’ve ever had.”

#TBT In honor of the upcoming anniversary exhibition #DZ25Years, we’ve asked our staff members to take a look back at some of the shows and events that have inspired them. Lucas Zwirner, Editorial Director of @davidzwirnerbooks for 2½ years, and son of the gallerist, recalls childhood jaunts with artist Jason Rhoades (1965–2006).

“Jason was one of the gallery’s earliest artists, and one of my father’s best friends. We spent a lot of time together. We would drive remote-controlled cars around and build things; he gave me a BB gun when I was 10. Jason was very open to what children were interested in, and the idea of the child’s mind—questioning, totally receptive—was really compelling for him. …
"The work of his that I remember best is Meccatuna from 2003. As part of the installation, he used a million Legos to build a perfectly scaled replica of the Kabba in Mecca. He had people in the gallery constantly at work building it. I can remember placing a Lego or two...

"I didn’t necessarily understand the political implications of the work at that time, but we had a sense that it was quite radical, especially post-9/11, to show the great Middle Eastern religious symbol in a child’s language—Legos. Suddenly, this highly inaccessible ritual and object was made accessible and present in a way that was unimaginable beforehand."

The @PalMuseum’s multifaceted project and exhibition #JerusalemLives aims to address the sociopolitical issues facing the city and its inhabitants. Continuing his ongoing body of work, “The Institute of Reconciliation,” Murillo established collaborations with community centers in Jerusalem, engaging residents in installing his black canvas works. The installations, on view through January 31, serve as “silent witness,” the artist told @hyperallergic. Read the full article at link in Story.
