David Zwirner is pleased to present new work by Christopher Williams (b. 1956). Referencing a wide range of source material, including Ikea catalogues, airplane magazines, coloring books, and his own past imagery, Footwear (Adapted for Use) reflects the artist's ongoing interest in how meaning and information are actively structured through the process of adaptation and restaging. The exhibition will feature new photographs as well as distinctive wall treatments, hand-painted signs, printed ephemera, sculptures, and videos. The imagery, surfaces, and objects on display engage with postwar material and cultural histories while also responding to the unique spatial qualities of the gallery's East 69th Street location in New York. This will be Williams's ninth solo exhibition with David Zwirner.
