Elena Asins. Untitled (Canons), 1990. Ink on paper, 13.2 x 13.2 in (33.5 x 33.5 cm). The Robledo-Palop Collection, New York. Long-term loan to the Museo de Arte Contemporaneo de Alicante, Spain

The Robledo-Palop Collection showcases a spectrum of artworks from the 20th and 21st centuries that reflect on the personal elections and perspectives of its founder. The Collection features work by artists such as Elena Asins, Antoni Tàpies, Equipo Crónica, Bryson Rand, Josep Renau, Julia Rooney, Zoe Walsh, Nelo Vinuesa, Selva Aparicio, and Tunji Adeniyi-Jones, among others.

Art, in the vision of Robledo-Palop, is an educative force, a conduit for transmitting the enduring values of empathy, critical thought, and cultural appreciation. This mission is exemplified by the collection’s policy of loaning artworks to museums and institutions around the world. Recent long-term loans include Josep Renau’s Trópico to the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofia (2016-2022) and the loan of a significant group of works by artist Elena Asins (1940-2015) to the Museo de Arte Contemporáneo de Alicante (MACA). This sharing of art enriches public spaces and dialogues, and it is also a way of fostering an environment where art is not only seen but also activated as part of the everyday collective human journey.

Robledo-Palop’s personal narrative is deeply interwoven with his professional trajectory. An art historian, collector and entrepreneur, his upbringing in a culture rich with artistic heritage sparked an early interest in collecting, which matured alongside his scholarly pursuits at prestigious institutions like the Universitat de València, Autonomous University of Madrid, and Yale University. He currently serves as the Founder and CEO of Zeit Contemporary Art, where he infuses his expertise and reverence for art into the professional realm, promoting art that transcends time and resonates with contemporary audiences. In his professional practice, Robledo-Palop continues to advocate for art as a mirror that reflects the multiplicity of the human experience and guides his clients through the complex but rewarding realm of art collecting, cultural appreciation, and philanthropy.
