Since the gallery's 2004 relocation to a ground floor space in the heart of Chelsea, they regularly publish exhibition catalogues collaborating with numerous scholars and critics. Pavel Zoubok Gallery is open Tuesday to Saturday, from 10:00 am to 6:00 pm, and is located at 531 West 26th Street, 2nd Floor (between 10th & 11th Avenues), in New York City.
