Gallery Interview
A conversation with Arne Zimmermann
Arne Zimmerman founded Pablo’s Birthday as a non-profit in 2002, shortly after moving to New York from Hamburg and alongside a full-time career in the advertising business. The program became a commercial gallery in 2004 and has operated out of their Orchard Street location since 2014.
Pius Fox, Das Versprechen, 2018, acrylic and egg tempera on canvas, 78 ¾ x 59 inches (200 x 150 cm)
“I want to show art which survives, which will stand up
as good in forty years.”
Pius Fox, Gebaeude, 2018, acrylic and oil on canvas, 78 ¾ x 59 inches (200 x 150 cm)
Alice Quaresma, NORTH SHORE, 2017, paint and tape over photo print, 10 x 7 inches (25 x 18 cm)
“We no longer have 15 minutes of fame, but 1.5 seconds of fame.”
“Our existing collectors are our foundation, but if you don’t educate new collectors and get them interested in your program, it’s over.”
Henrik Eiben, MINNESOTA, 2016, lacquer, leather, and steel, 42 1/3 x 49 1/5 x 4 1/3 inches (115 x 125 x 11 cm)

Your chief characteristic?
Positive and future-oriented. I look forward, not behind.
If not yourself, who would you be?
My father. He was a great man –– 110% straight, lived up to his values, and would never have done anything that would be considered cutting corners. Yesterday was his birthday.
What is your greatest extravagance?
Spending tons of time with my kids and my wife. Every year we spend two months living at the beach in Italy.
What do you consider the most overrated virtue?
This might not be a virtue, but luxury is overrated for me. Beauty is important to me but luxury is not.
For what fault do you have the most toleration?
Being chaotic. I care more about the results than the process. As long as people are trustworthy, I’m willing to work with them and solve problems if things go off track.
