Established in 2001 as Heather Marx Gallery and renamed in 2008, Marx & Zavattero are well known for exhibiting and representing artists who engage in a variety of practices indicative of a strong, singular voice. Themes that bridge many of our artists’ work are: process, identity, political/social/environmental critique, beauty, and dark humor – and most significantly – a sense of bold irreverence to trends.
For a decade, Marx & Zavattero have maintained their provocative gallery program and succeeded in continuing to promote their artists, shape their careers, and forge lasting relationships with collectors, curators, and museums. The gallery currently represents 18 artists who are established on the forefront of a contemporary national and international art dialogue.
The gallery has mounted over 90 solo and group exhibitions at its San Francisco space, and has also co-ordinated and participated in many significant solo and group museum exhibitions and high-profile art fairs across the United States and in Europe, in which gallery artists were featured.
Marx & Zavattero’s passion has been, and continues to be, the direction of a space and program that feels alive – challenging people’s prejudices both socially and aesthetically – and promoting artists who take a constant risk by creating intensely personal work.
