Zoya Niedermann is best known for her bronze sculptures and figurative forms, particularly her stylized characters. At the 1993 Fujisankei Biennale in Tokyo, she earned first prize – an honour given in previous years to esteemed artists such as Caro, César and Butler – for Arch Figures, a piece subsequently installed for permanent display at the Hakone Open-Air Museum. In 1990, she was the subject of a major exhibition at the Musée d’art de Joliette. Her works in Montreal include the immense esplanade Danseuse et fontaine, located to the right of the façade at 2000 McGill College Avenue, south of President Kennedy Avenue.
