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.
