Marcel Dzama‘s work is characterised by an immediately recognisable visual language that draws from a diverse range of references and artistic influences, including Dada and Marcel Duchamp.

While he has become known for his prolific drawings with their distinctive palette of muted colours, in recent years, the artist has expanded his practice to encompass sculpture, painting, film, and dioramas. The artist’s most recent show with David Zwirner in New York – Marcel Dzama: Behind Every Curtain (2011) – marked his sixth solo exhibition with the gallery since 1998.

On view in London will be a range of recent works, including films, sculptures, and drawings.
About the artist
 
Born in 1974 in Winnipeg, Canada, Dzama received his B.F.A. from the University of Manitoba, Winnipeg. In 2012, two solo exhibitions of Dzama’s work were on view at the Centro de Arte Contemporáneo de Málaga in Málaga, Spain and the World Chess Hall of Fame and Museum in St. Louis, Missouri. His work has been the subject of several solo exhibitions, most recently in 2011 at Gemeentemuseum, The Hague, The Netherlands, and Kunstverein Braunschweig, Germany. In 2010, a major survey was organized by the Musée d’art contemporain de Montréal, Canada. Other important solo exhibitions include the Pinakothek der Moderne, Munich (2008); Ikon Gallery, Birmingham, England (2006); and Le Magasin – Centre National d’Art Contemporain de Grenoble, France (2005).
Dzama’s work is held in museum collections worldwide, including the Corcoran Gallery of Art, Washington, D.C.; Dallas Museum of Art; Musée d’art contemporain de Montréal, Canada; Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles; The Museum of Modern Art, New York; Solomon R.
