NEW YORK, NY.- David Zwirner presents Who is sleeping on my
pillow, two concurrent solo exhibitions by Swedish artists Mamma Andersson and
Jockum Nordström. After spending half their lives together while maintaining
separate practices, this is the first time they have exhibited together. This is
Mamma Andersson’s second exhibition at the gallery (her U.S. debut was at David
Zwirner in 2006), and Jockum Nordström’s fifth.
Known for her complex,
multilayered subjects that converge between domestic interiors and Nordic
landscapes, Andersson will present all new paintings. From Nordström, on view
will be collages, other works on paper, and sculptures made of cardboard and
matchboxes. Also featured will be two collaborative works, Sleepwalkers and
Wetland, both from 2010. In these two-sided works on paper, Andersson has
created lush color washes on the back, while Nordström has collaged the front
with figures of people, animals, and trees. On view 29 April through 12

Knopf Publishes “Painting Below Zero” by Pop Artist James Rosenquist

From James Rosenquist, one of our most iconic pop
artists—along with Andy Warhol, Jim Dine, Claes Oldenburg, and Roy
Lichtenstein—comes this candid and fascinating memoir. Unlike these artists,
Rosenquist often works in three-dimensional forms, with highly dramatic shifts
in scale
and a far more complex palette, including grisaille
and Day-Glo colors.
A skilled traditional painter, he avoided the
stencils and silk screens of Warhol and Lichtenstein. His vast canvases full of
brilliant, surreally juxtaposed images would influence both many of his
contemporaries and younger generations, as well as revolutionize
twentieth-century painting.
