Marcel Dzama’s ‘Behind Every Curtain’

by JL SchnabelPosted on

Embellished with strange details and an ingenious sincerity that echoes outsider Henry Darger, artist Marcel Dzama’s intriguing oeuvre seduces a varied audience. His most recent show ‘Behind Every Curtain’ at NYC’s David Zwirner Gallery, expanded upon his previously engaging style with a more elevated, sophisticated technique, including looming sculptures and his signature watercolors. The masked figures are shown clutching an array of contradictory objects as they cluster together or dance, such as thin swords, umbrellas, and ritualistic staffs, conjuring a bizarre yet cohesive aesthetic.
