ADAA: The Art Show    Mar 6 - Mar 10, 2013


David Zwirner is pleased to participate in ADAA: The Art Show with a special presentation of works by American artist Milton Avery (1885-1965). Executed in the 1930s, the paintings feature circus scenes or vaudeville performances, and include wild animal tamers, trapeze artists, strippers, and sideshows. They are based on sketches the artist made while sitting in the audience—Avery and his wife went weekly at a time when vaudeville was rapidly declining in popularity due to the Great Depression as well as the increasing accessibility of film and radio—and reflect his fascination with quotidian life and spontaneous, often humorous detail.
