Founder & CEO: Joan Robledo-Palop
Founded in 2016 in New York City, Zeit Contemporary Art specializes in modern, post-war and contemporary art with a focus on Europe and the Americas. Our mission is deeply committed to the understanding of art as a complex cultural object that defines the time and space where it is created.
ZCA organizes four carefully curated exhibitions a year both on contemporary artists and historically focused projects. Previous exhibitions and online viewing rooms include critically acclaimed projects such as Minimal Means: Concrete Inventions in the US, Brazil and Spain (2019), Andy Warhol: The Last Decade (2020), Painting Abstraction: 197X – Today (2021), and Lilt, Joy and Clarity: The Prints of Ellsworth Kelly (2022).
ZCA also has an active participation in prominent international art fairs. Additionally, we provide a unique service of private sales of museum quality works with rigorous discretion.
ZCA was founded by Joan Robledo-Palop, a collector and art historian graduated from the universities of Valencia, Madrid, and Yale, where he wrote his master’s thesis on the art of Francisco de Goya. In addition to his graduate studies, Robledo-Palop has been a Research Fellow at the Institute of History in the Spanish National Research Council - CSIC, and a Visiting Scholar at New York University.
As a well-known scholar of modern and contemporary art, he has published, taught and given public lectures at Yale, The School of Visual Arts in New York, University College Cork, Ireland, The Hermitage Museum in St. Petersburg, Russia, Centre Pompidou Málaga and The Reina Sofia Museum in Madrid.
At Zeit Contemporary Art, Joan Robledo-Palop merges his experience as a scholar, curator and art market specialist to build world-class collections of modern and contemporary art inspired by innovation and connoisseurship.

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.
