Allison Zuckerman

Allison Zuckerman, b. 1990, is a Brooklyn-based painter and mixed media artist who describes her work as a remixing of art history and contemporary culture with an emphasis on female empowerment. The content of Allison Zuckerman‘s paintings draws equally from the annals of art history and the imagery of net culture, with a special focus on the representation of women by male authors. Composed of collaged elements torn from previous work, which are then painted over, Zuckerman’s pictures are filled with colourful figures and fragments, packed to the point of almost total saturation, creating endless pictorial connections between otherwise disparate cultural symbols and motifs. Zuckerman’s work has been the subject of solo exhibitions at The Herzliya Museum of Contemporary Art, Israel (2019); The University of Florida in Gainesville (2019); The Akron Art Museum, Akron, USA (2018); and the Rubell Museum, Miami, USA (2017). Some of her notable collaborations include Veuve Clicquot, TODs, Charli XCX, Elle USA, and Vogue Italia.
