Karla Black, David Zwirner, New York

This winter, David Zwirner, New York, hosts an exhibition of new work by Scottish artist Karla Black, the artist’s second solo show with the gallery. On view from 27 February will be sculptures made specifically for the space and completed on site. Combining traditional artistic materials such as chalk, paper, paint, and plaster with everyday items including eye shadow, earth, ribbon, toilet paper, and cotton wool, Black’s works are at once elaborate and simple, expressive and restrained. They challenge their own medium by being “almost” or “only just” objects with a close affinity to painting, performance art, and installation.

27 February – 26 March.
