Almond Zigmund



Originally from Brooklyn, Zigmund received her BFA from Parsons School of Design, in both New York and Paris.  She later earned her MFA from the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, where she studied art theory and criticism with the MacArthur Award-winning critic, Dave Hickey.  During this formative period, far removed from the New York art world, Zigmund pushed her boundaries, followed her own path, and began to make smart, cool stuff.

Zigmund's work has been exhibited internationally for the past decade, including shows in Zurich, Berlin, New York, Los Angeles, Las Vegas, and Columbus.  Her work has been selected for shows curated by Dave Hickey, Robert Storr, David Pagel, David Adamo, Jessica Frost, Rolf Staub and Steven Criqui, among others.  In 2007 the Parrish Art Museum mounted a solo exhibition of her work, titled “Remembering The Future”.  Zigmund currently splits her time between Brooklyn and East Hampton, and has been represented by the Rebecca Ibel Gallery since 2005.
