Jason Rhoades Memorial & Contribution

Everyone at David Zwirner, New York; Galerie Hauser & Wirth, London & Zurich; and Zwirner & Wirth, New York mourns the sudden loss of our dear friend, Jason Rhoades.

Jason died in Los Angeles on Tuesday, August 1st. He was 41 years old and is survived by his wife, Rachel Khedoori, and their daughter, Rubi.

Jason first showed with David Zwirner in 1993, with his groundbreaking exhibition, CHERRY Makita - Honest Engine Work. His current exhibition, Tijuanatanjierchandelier, is on view until October 29 at Centro de Arte Contemporáneo de Málaga in Spain. At the time of his death, he was preparing for a show at David Zwirner of Black Pussy, which was shown at Hauser & Wirth in London in 2005.

A public memorial celebrating Jason's life and work will be held at LA MOCA in September; details will be announced at a later date.
