Allison Zuckerman (born 1990) is a contemporary American painter. Zuckerman's pop-surrealist work[1] fuses painting with digital printing techniques and appropriates various art historical tropes and references to "recast the submissive, romanticized female muses painted by male artists throughout Western art history as commanding, empowered figures"[2] Zuckerman creates an alternative narrative by remixing the female sitters of prominent male artists into a feminist 21st century.[3]

Early life and education[edit]

Zuckerman grew up in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania[4]. She received a BA from the University of Pennsylvania in 2012 and an MFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago in 2015.

Zuckerman attended the Yale Norfolk Summer School of Art in 2011.

Work and Exhibitions[edit]

Zuckerman's first solo exhibition, "Act Natural[5]", opened at Kravets Wehby Gallery in 2017. Jerry Saltz described the show as "...a jam-packed, full-on optical assault of figurative paintings. It’s like walking into an orgy of art history mixed with swingers carousing, coming out into space, situated around the gallery like the best bordellos in old New Orleans"[6]

Zuckerman was the artist-in-residence[7][8][9] at the Rubell Family Collection[10] during the summer of 2017. During this time, she created work for her first museum solo show[11] "Stranger in Paradise[12][13][14]" which opened December 6, 2017 at the Rubell Family Collection in Wynwood, Miami during Art Basel Miami Beach week. Zuckerman utilized "paint and digitally manipulated printed images to create hybridized portraits[15] suffused with cultural and societal critiques[16]." Michael Darling and Tami-Katz Freiman were contributing authors for the catalogue[17] of this exhibition.

Zuckerman's second museum solo show, "Pirate and Muse[18]," opened October 27, 2018 at the Akron Art Museum. Jeremy Scott, Creative Director of Moschino, wrote the forward for the exhibition's catalogue[19][20]. Ellen Rudolph[21] curated the show, describing Zuckerman as pillaging "Western art history, dismantling bodies and piecing together new ones that expose vulnerability and imperfection. Zuckerman’s figures are amalgams of body parts, clothing and background elements from artists [all male] throughout history, and Disney and other pop culture imagery.[22]"

Painting by Allison Zuckerman, created in 2018

"She uses elements of Picasso’s style[23][24]", Cézanne, and Matisse[25] within many of her paintings.

The Pizzuti Collection[26] featured Zuckerman's work in the group show "Go Figure", "an exhibition that investigates the human form in both a tender and provocative approach[27]" in 2018.
