This event has ended.

Encompassing all three of the main gallery spaces at David Zwirner, Adel Abdessemed's "RIO" features sculptures, drawings, photographs, and videos made from 2008 to 2009.
The installation of the show envisages a maze of main rooms, corridors, and entrances that collectively create a complex yet
harmonious environment. Visitors are given the possibility of several different journeys though the spaces, while individual works still remain autonomous.

The show is called Rio, meaning river. I observe the world with
the same fascination that my daughter, Rio, contemplates the big
animals in the zoo that are thirsty and hungry.
–Adel Abdessemed
