Enrico David’s Multidisciplinary Artworks to Tour the United States
He was born in Ancona, Italy, and lives in London. But starting this fall, the work of multi-hyphenate artist Enrico David is being shown around the United States. Michael Werner Gallery in New York kicks off the tour with his self-named show on September 8 to November 24. Then, “Enrico David: Gradations of Slow Release” opens at the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago on September 29, before it travels to the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden in Washington on April 18, 2019. All three exhibitions showcase David’s ability as a sculptor, drawer, painter, and textile artist, the works centering on the human form, straddling the border between fine art and craftsmanship. The latter survey spans nearly 20 years, beginning with his pop art–esque female form in pink and black wool stripes from 1999, created five years after he graduated from Central Saint Martins.
