While the primary market has always been a driving force of

our program, represented by a diverse group of gallery artists, we maintain an inventory of works by important proponents of the medium, including Hannelore Baron, Joe Brainard, Joseph Cornell, Al Hansen, Ray Johnson, Jiri Kolar, Mimmo Rotella, Anne Ryan, Jacques Villeglé and David Wojnarowicz. Since the gallery’s 2004 relocation to a ground floor space in the heart of Chelsea, we make a regular practice of publishing exhibition catalogues collaborating with numerous scholars and critics including Alexander Andersen-Spivy, Dan Cameron, Edward Gomez, Robert Hobbs, Charlotta Kotik, Carlo McCormick, Robert Rosenblum and Dickran Tashjian. Our audience continues to broaden and we continue to develop relationships with institutions. Museum associations have included Wadsworth Atheneum of Art, Brooklyn Museum, Katonah Museum of Art, New Britain Museum of American Art, Newark Museum, Norton Museum of Art, and others. In addition to our stated focus, we have also maintained a tangential but related interest in Surrealism, establishing an inventory of works by artists such as Max Ernst, Yves Tanguy, Roberto Matta, George Hugnet, Kay Sage and Stella Snead. In 2009, Pavel Zoubok Gallery was made a member of the ADAA (Art Dealer's Association of America).

The esteemed art historian Jack Flam summed up Addie Herder’s art, writing: “Every passionate gesture of belief is debunked at the same time it is articulated yet without any loss of conviction…. This paradoxical heart of experience is captured in the miniaturized vastness that is the genius of Addie’s work.”

“I know the first person that I look to when I make my art is myself and I make it because I love those types of materials and that kind of like celebratory feeling. My art is very similar to a Christmas tree because a Christmas tree has decorations that are used year after year, families put up Christmas tree decorations, then they get put in a box and put way. Christmas trees are a really good symbol of the celebration of life, both strong and fragile at the same time.”–Thomas Lanigan-Schmidt in a 2021 interview with L’nique Noel, Rubin-Ladd Intern, FIU graduate, and MFA student.

"In the prevailing literature that surrounds Pop – and particularly the artists working in America – much attention is paid to a group of five or so men who are central to the movement’s adoption by a broad commercial and critical audience. By reconsidering the influence of a variety of figures – many of them women – who actively participated in the movement from its inception, we can cull new insights into the recurring themes and meanings within Pop art itself, while also gleaning new perspective on the artists and movements which proceed it."

Thank you to everyone at the for making this exhibition and catalogue a reality! See link in bio.

"Addie Herder (1920–2009) worked on a small scale, exploring rigorous compositional principles of balance and dynamism. Her career was not loud, but her distinctive voice was understood and appreciated by many collectors. Herder’s oeuvre inspires new modes of questioning assumptions about who makes great art. Machines for Living, the first museum exhibition devoted to the work of Herder since the 1976 survey at the , scintillates in the context of new art historical narratives. This beautifully illustrated book is the first to examine her intricate and intriguing “assemblage” constructions and ephemera, bringing her careful works to the present day."

was a formative part of Pavel Zoubok Gallery, as well as a cherished friend and mentor. My first encounter with her intimately scaled collages and paper constructions was a revelation. In works that are intimate in scale but large in visual impact, she captured so much of the joy and wonder I felt in large, cosmopolitan cities like New York, Paris, and London. In the early years of our friendship, we had periodic dinner parties with the Surrealist painter and photographer Stella Snead, whom I would go on to represent for many years, and the pioneering fiber and mixed-media artist, Lenore Tawney, both of whom became dear friends. These evenings, spent in quiet restaurants talking and drinking champagne, were an education in the New York art world of the 1940s, 50s, and beyond, and in the challenges of being a working artist while female in the time before Feminism. - Pavel Zoubok

’s sculptures combine a natural roughness, inherent to his chosen material, with highly polished, fluid forms that inexplicably appear to wrap, or bind solid masses in what the artist often regards as a kind of embrace. At first glance, these binding, swathing elements appear to be made from leather, fabric, or rubber, but they are in fact carved from the same solid stone mass.

These works and more on view through September 16th! Call ahead to confirm your visit.

New work by on view this summer!

More about the artists:

have collaborated to conceive and carve their enigmatic, biomorphic forms from the pure white stone of northern Italy. Painstakingly shaped and polished, their works engage the viewer, one another, as well as a range of found objects in ways suggestive of living flesh---corpulent, sensuous, and playful. Drawing on sources both classical and futuristic, these fleshy, white forms, or presences, activate spaces and objects that are often overlooked. They slither across floors, fold themselves around objects and crawl across walls striking manneristic poses that alter our perception of their substance and the manner of their creation.

Congratulations to and for this glowing write up in !

"I endorse a rethinking of Sari Dienes’ distinguished but dreamy position in the last 100 years of art, a radical moving up of her name to the top of the pantheon of important 20th-century artists of which there were so many she personally knew. I propose we more readily accept the question marks she uniquely generated as givens of contemporary life that helped move the art-life continuum off the wall then and into the present. No artist’s work is a more deserving proxy for perplexing, persistent mysteries that, all these years later, still cry out to be addressed". - Mark Bloch

"Sari Dienes: Incidental Nature" on view through October 22, 2023.

We are pleased to showcase the work of Sicilian-born sculptor !

Cicciarella’s sculptures combine a natural roughness, inherent to his chosen material, with highly polished, fluid forms that inexplicably appear to wrap, or bind solid masses in what the artist often regards as a kind of embrace. At first glance, these binding, swathing elements appear to be made from leather, fabric, or rubber, but they are in fact carved from the same solid stone mass. By the artist’s hand, monolithic forms are split like atoms and held together in compositions that speak directly to our collective need for closeness and connection.

These works and more are on view in "ABBRACCI" through September 16th!

We are delighted to share installation images from " : Incidental Nature" . Photos by Jacek Gancarz.

"In reaction to the movement, which upheld the genius of the individual male artist and viewed the canvas as a sacred space, Sari Dienes instead took her materials out of the studio and into the streets, most times accompanied by a coterie of friends. In the Sidewalk series, the artist laid up to 30 feet of Webril – a tough fabric used to create medical casts - down sidewalks, often at 3 am, and aided by artist-friends, would use a brayer roller and highly pigmented ink to capture the texture and random patterns in the environment." - Curator Kelli Bodle

Our Story

Since 1997, Pavel Zoubok has exhibited the work of contemporary and modern artists with a unique focus in the fields of collage, assemblage and mixed media installation. From the outset, Pavel Zoubok Gallery combined modern and contemporary works in an effort to create a cohesive art historical and commercial context for collage and its related forms, spanning most of the major art movements of the postwar period. While the primary market has always been the driving force of our activity, represented by a diverse group of distinguished contemporary artists, we have always maintained an inventory of works by important proponents of the medium, including Hannelore Baron, Joe Brainard, Joseph Cornell, Al Hansen, Grace Hartigan, Ray Johnson, Jiri Kolar, Robert Motherwell, Louise Nevelson, Mimmo Rotella, Anne Ryan, Jacques Villegle and David Wojnarowicz. Our twentieth year marks a new chapter in our story, with a more dynamic business model and a name change to Pavel Zoubok Fine Art. The result is a more diverse range of exhibitions and public programs in venues across the United States and abroad.
