ZieherSmith was established in 2003 by Andrea Smith Zieher and Scott Zieher in a storefront space on West 25th Street, where it presented the first New York solo shows by Chuck Webster, Eddie Martinez, Wes Lang, and Corin Sworn, among others. In September 2009, the gallery expanded to a 3500 sq. ft. space on West 20th Street, where the program developed to include celebrated artists such as Allison Schulnik and Christoph Ruckhäberle, while continuing to debut emerging artists like Rachel Rossin, Lauren Silva and Paul Anthony Smith. The gallery has also presented unique shows of historical material such as 2011’s Sculpture in So Many Words: Text Pieces, 1965-75, which traveled to the Nasher Sculpture Center, Dallas in 2012-13, and a trio of critically acclaimed vernacular photography exhibitions: Photo Brut (2013), Other Bodies (2012), and Band of Bikers (2010). ZieherSmith was among the earliest members of the New Art Dealers Alliance (NADA) in 2003, and Andrea Zieher served as NADA’s President from 2006-2010. ZieherSmith has forged ties in Nashville, Tennessee , where it has produced several art events and pop-up exhibitions since 2011 featuring over 50 renowned artists including Christian Jankowski, Harmony Korine, Sam Moyer, David Ostrowski, Rachel Owens, Sara VanDerBeek, and Lynette Yiadom-Boakye.
