This event has ended.

David Zwirner is pleased to present an exhibition of work by the artist and activist Frank Moore (1953–2002), organized by the Pulitzer Prize–winning author, critic, and curator Hilton Als, this show will provide an overview of Moore’s practice as a painter during the years he was most active, from the 1980s through the late 1990s.

An essayist with a brush, Moore connected complex ideas in his works and illustrated a polymathic desire to elucidate the wonder and anguish of the world around him. He turned to painting as his primary form of expression in the late 1980s, considering it “an intensely sensual activity” that occupied both a limitless and bounded space: “When a painting is activated, my universe seems to cease at the framing edge.” Moore committed himself to a rigorous research-based studio practice that resulted in exquisitely rich allegories of contemporary queer life and fabulist modes of self-portraiture.
