Directors: Michel Zlotowski, Yves Zlotowski
Created in 1998, Galerie Zlotowski has been dedicated to modern art and avant-gardes of the early XXth century since its opening. We furthermore developed an increasing interest towards more recent artists of the second half of the century. The gallery has become an international reference while taking part in the rediscovery of the pictorial work of Le Corbusier and organized many exhibitions dedicated to this multi-faced artist. In 2019, the gallery has loaned several pieces for a major exhibition on Purism for the 50th anniversary of the Tokyo Museum of Western Art, a building designed by Le Corbusier. In 2020, Galerie Zlotowski has participated to an exhibition dedicated to Le Corbusier’s drawings in Brussels.
The gallery takes part to several international art fairs such as FIAC, Art Basel or TEFAF. We have the privilege to have museums as clients. The Gallery has often loaned pieces for important exhibitions. We sent major works by Ella Bergmann-Michel and Robert Michel for an extensive retrospective taking place in the Sprengel Museum of Hannover in 2018 and to the Musée des Arts de Nantes, for an exhibition dedicated to Charlie Chaplin in October 2019 – February 2020. A work by Sophie Taeuber-Arp will go the comprehensive retrospective that is to take place at the KunstMuseum in Basel, the Tate Modern in London and the MoMa in New York in 2021.
In 2021, the Gallery is showing an exhibition dedicated to Georges Valmier and another one to Sonia Delaunay. Furthermore, we prepare an exhibition of works by Sheila Hicks, scheduled in the fall of 2021. The gallery frequently organizes exhibitions with catalogues dedicated to artists such as Albert Gleizes, Amédée Ozenfant, Kurt Schwitters Simon Hantaï, Jean Dubuffet, Joaquin Torres Garcia, Stéphane Mandelbaum, François Morellet, Ella Bergmann-Michel and Robert Michel. Galerie Zlotowski is well-recognized for its commitment to show high quality works and the publishing of catalogues written by the most renowned experts.
Due to the gravity of the international situation resulting from the spread of COVID-19 and in order to protect the health of all parties concerned, we have decided to cancel the 29th edition of the Salon du dessin.
France officially declared a state of health emergency on 24 March for two months and there are still numerous uncertainties regarding the evolution of the pandemic over the coming months. These factors make it impossible to reprogram the Salon before the summer of 2020 and the Salon du dessin, which usually attracts numerous other events in Paris for a week, will therefore not take place this year.
Louis de Bayser, President of the Salon du dessin said “this is a difficult decision to take with regard to all those who worked hard for this edition, but our priority is to protect the health of all our exhibitors, visitors and partners”.
We send our thoughts to all those affected by this epidemic and hope that this unprecedented health situation will quickly change favorably.
