Overview

The famous David Zwirner Gallery in New York has been a base of operations for the Belgian painter Luc Tuymans since 1994. At the start of his career, Tuymans committed himself to showing a new series of works there once every two years--a promise that he kept, and continues to keep, 18 years on, as his tempered style and political content have steadily garnered him worldwide acclaim. Tuymans’ thematic exhibitions at the Zwirner Gallery have tackled controversial topics, ranging from the Holocaust to Belgium’s colonial past and the hypocrisy of the Disney empire. Luc Tuymans: Exhibitions at David Zwirner 1994–2012 presents the artist’s major works, together with brief commentary, photographs and archival documentation. Interviews with four leading U.S. critics--Ann Temkin, Brice Marden, Peter Schjeldahl and Robert Storr--that were conducted specially for this publication by Lynne Tillman discuss Tuymans’ presence in the U.S.

Editorial Reviews

Bookforum - Johanna Fateman
The Belgian artist-- once a savvy player in the '90s resusitation of figurative painting-- is now an influential fixture in the art world, known for his subdued, often sickly palette, his strange compositions, and his witholding of excpected details like facial features. Such formal idiosyncracies are brought to into relief by the luminous patina of his works... The image, solemnly elegant, shows Tuymans regarding something blankly-- his work? a screen? the viewer? Among the many questions it raises is the one that Tuymans can always be counted on to provoke: "Is something wrong?"
