David Zwirner is pleased to present an exhibition of works from the 1960s and 1970s by De Wain Valentine (b. 1936). A key member of what is often referred to as the Light and Space movement, Valentine is distinguished in particular by his in-depth understanding of synthetic materials and his ability to transform these industrial products into artworks that reveal his fascination with light, transparency, reflection, and surface. On view at 525 and 533 West 19th Street in New York, this exhibition will focus on the artist’s pioneering achievements in polyester resin and present the key forms that he articulated and returned to during this period. The exhibition, which is organized in cooperation with the artist, will include a selection of works that fully demonstrates Valentine’s range and virtuosity with his chosen material.
