David Zwirner presents Pure Form, an exhibition of works by gallery and non-gallery artists that explores the formal qualities of abstraction, on view at the gallery’s 69th Street location.

Throughout the history of modern and contemporary art, artists have engaged with the visual, experiential, and conceptual dimensions of shape, color, texture, and materiality, positing these qualities as the subject of their work rather than any overt representational imagery. This exhibition highlights a variety of abstract, minimalist, and nonrepresentational approaches artists have pursued in their art over the past seventy years. Some works play with spatial representation, such as Fred Sandback’s use of the seemingly infinite vertical line to create a phenomenological experience of space, while others rely on gestural marks and patterns to create ordered compositions. Featured works date from the 1950s—including the complex, interwoven looped-wire sculptures of Ruth Asawa and the perceptually demanding paintings of Ad Reinhardt—up to the present, represented by Suzan Frecon’s work that focuses on the process of painting itself. In this way, works by contemporary artists are shown to be in a continuous and ongoing dialogue with their predecessors, further revealing the wide range of expressions artists have pursued within a focused and restrained set of formal means.
