Zadok Gallery: A New Space for the Arts in Wynwood
By Denise Colson
Zadok Art Gallery (ZAG) opened its doors in Miami’s Wynwood Art District on March 1 of this year with an ambitious schedule of exhibitions. It promises to present the South Florida community with an excellent selection of artists dating from the post-World War II era to the present day.
The gallery, which occupies a space of 17500 square feet, was founded by Miriam and Dror Zadok and aims to bring to South Florida many of the most internationally renowned artists of Asia, Europe and the Americas. It seeks to exhibit works with political and social content that invite the spectator to establish a rewarding dialogue with contemporary artistic production.
This new project realizes the Zadoks’ dream of founding an art gallery. Forty years ago, this New York couple decided to establish residency in Miami. Since then, they have generated various businesses, notably Perfume International, a company focused on the import and export of designer fragrances. For the past fifteen years, the Zadoks have successfully expanded into commercial real estate. As philanthropists as well as collectors, they have for decades actively collaborated with numerous South Florida charitable foundations. Their new gallery will be pleased to welcome philanthropic initiatives centered on fostering awareness of charitable causes and fund-raising efforts.
The gallery opened with four exhibitions: the group shows “Minimalism in the Line” and “Chasing Flames,” as well as the solo exhibitions of Tomáš Loewy and Karim Ghidinelli. ”Minimalism in the Line” assembles the works of Luca Artioli, Stephen Gamson and YOM. These three artists work with very different techniques, materials and resources, but they share similar aesthetic bases sustained by the minimalist movement. Mies Van der Rohe’s iconic phrase “Less is More” guides the work of these creators. First, we find the Italian Luca Artioli and his ArtDECOnstruction series, photographs in which Miami Beach’s art deco architecture is the great protagonist. Artioli plays with light, which allows him to display building details that he then amplifies until their contours become blurred. This results in work of simple and singular beauty. Stephen Gamson, for his part, derives inspiration from graphic design, while the sculptor YOM revolutionizes contemporary sculpture with his refined shapes.
Twenty-five of today’s most prominent Chinese artists have been assembled in “Chasing Flames,” notably: Liu Bolin, Zhao Bo, Maleonn, Feng Zhengjie, Zhang Dali and Lu Hao. The works of these artists demonstrate how Chinese art has become integrated into contemporaneity after decades of isolation during the most radical stage of China’s communist dictatorship.
In contrast, the solo exhibitions of Karim Ghidinelli and Tomáš Loewy allow us to glimpse the work of these creators. Loewy presents infinite combinations of images that he captures with his own camera or takes from broadcast media, creating scenarios reminiscent of sci-fi movies. Ghidinelli surprises us with an oeuvre that delves into identity and the permanence of traces we leave behind on our journey through this world. He engraves metal plates and prints out enormous fingerprints to which he applies pigments. He randomly combines the fingerprint images with his own texts or those borrowed from other people, indelible evidence of the boundless wandering of the human being.
In conjunction with its endeavor to promote, nurture and commercialize the career of young artists, Zadok Gallery also ventures into the secondary market through its relationship with an extensive network of art brokers, galleries and collectors. Furthermore, it plans to incorporate an educational component into its activities. Soon it will initiate a program of talks, christened ZAGtalks, in which artists, art consultants, art brokers, curators and collectors will be invited to discuss the behavior of the art market, trends in collecting, and the creative process of many of its artists. These presentations will take place during the recently inaugurated “Last Thursday Walks.”
Zadok Art Gallery plans an ambitious calendar of exhibitions for the remainder of the year. This will furnish the Wynwood Art District with two important ingredients: excellence and cultural diversity.

AN ASIDE: Just loved this new gallery and was disappointed when it closed. The opening show was outstanding. I just took my new chic fashionable womens eyeglasses off my face and just gazed at the works of art. These contemporary artists were amazing. I was impressed by the ”Minimalism in the Line” exhibit and particularly Luca Artiol, who is truly an artist, poet and photographer. His shimmering photographs are certainly memorable.
When I first saw his work at the show I had on my new glasses which are really for reading and as I glanced up from the catalogue to look at the art I was taken aback. I thought the vibrating light from his photographs were caused by my glasses. But upon removing them, voila, it was not me at all. My partner had no idea what caused my gasp of delight at seeing Serenissama Dreaming Exhibition for the first time.
Art gallery in Wynwood sells for $10.8M
MIAMI / July 17, 2015 09:45 AM By Katherine Kallergis
A half-acre property in Wynwood has sold for more than three times its last sale price in 2008, Miami-Dade County records show.
The two parcels at 2534 North Miami Avenue and 26 Southwest 26th Street sold for $10.8 million to a company led by Jonathan Bernstein. Bernstein, who has his own consulting company, is also managing director and general counsel of Coventry Real Estate Advisers, a real estate investment manager in New York.
C1 Bank granted the buyer a $6.2 million mortgage, records show. The 18,870-square-foot building previously housed the Zadok Art Gallery. Zadok Real Estate Holdings is the seller.
The 23,950-square-foot property includes a parking lot. The parcels last sold for $3.2 million in July 2008, according to Miami-Dade property records. The two-story building was constructed in 1950 and recently underwent a multimillion-dollar renovation, according to a press release. The first floor is currently arranged for retail or a showroom, while the second floor is set up as office space.
The buyer, Badjer LLC, was represented by Michael Tobin, a partner in Rothman & Tobin PA., which plans to lease the building for retail. The seller was represented by Ivo Tsinev and Achikam Yogev of Colliers International South Florida.
“Wynwood originally began as a warehouse and manufacturing district, and is now a popular arts destination,” Yogev said in a statement. “Retailers are aggressively pursuing locations in Wynwood, causing it to become a rapidly developing area that’s gaining strength in the retail market.”
Investors are awaiting potential upzoning of Wynwood.
The city of Miami’s Planning, Zoning and Appeals Board recently approved a slate of changes to zoning and land use designations that would allow denser residential developments on roughly 205 acres in Wynwood. The recommendations must still be finalized by the city commission.
