David Zwirner presents an exhibition of photographs by Philip-Lorca diCorcia (born in 1951), featuring images from a series of eleven editorial projects that the artist created for W magazine between 1997 and 2008, including several photographs that have never been exhibited before. These images weave together richly loaded narratives and sometimes appear far removed from the fashion industry’s traditional emphasis on formulaic beauty and harmony. Instead, they involve a delicate balance between glamour and grit, imagination and irony. Photographing in Bangkok, Cairo, Havana, Los Angeles, New York, Paris and São Paulo, diCorcia created distinctive series that are rife with ambiguous meanings and loaded connotations as characters appear and reappear in myriad settings.
In conjunction with the launch of his Louis Vuitton Travel Book: Morocco, a show of new works by Marcel Dzama will be presented at the gallery during Paris Gallery Weekend. Inspired by his trip to Morocco, these drawings engage the collective sense of wonder and discovery we have temporarily lost in these times. A group of exclusive new works produced in June in New York while the artist was still under the spell of his Moroccan memories, will also be included.
