Kallem shared a studio on 28th Street in NYC with artist and actor, Zero Mostel, where a group of artists calling themselves "The 28th Street Gang" focused their New York community.

Herbert Kallem had exhibitions at The Whitney Museum Of American Art and The Carnegie Institute, and with The American Abstract Artists Group in New York, San Francisco, Paris, Rome, Tokyo and Copenhagen.
