Pace Gallery

*Opening Soon*

Pace is a leading contemporary art gallery representing many of the most significant international artists and estates of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. Under the leadership of President and CEO Marc Glimcher, Pace is a vital force within the art world and plays a critical role in shaping the history, creation, and engagement with modern and contemporary art. Since its founding by Arne Glimcher in 1960, Pace has developed a distinguished legacy for vibrant and dedicated relationships with renowned artists. As the gallery enters its seventh decade, Pace’s mission continues to be inspired by a drive to support the world’s most influential and innovative artists and to share their visionary work with people around the world.

Pace advances this mission through its dynamic global program, comprising ambitious exhibitions, artist projects, public installations, institutional collaborations, performances and interdisciplinary projects through Pace Live, and curatorial research and writing. Today, Pace has nine locations worldwide: two galleries in New York—including its newly opened headquarters at 540 West 25th Street, and an adjacent 8,000 sq. ft. exhibition space at 510 West 25th Street—as well as galleries in Palo Alto, London, Geneva, Hong Kong, and Seoul. In July 2020 Pace opened a temporary gallery space in East Hampton, New York that will be programmed through October 2021. The Palm Beach gallery will be Pace’s ninth location worldwide.

The gallery will launch in Palm Beach with a presentation dedicated to three unique aperture wall installations by California-based artist James Turrell, whose work draws attention to the presence of light and its transformation of our perception of space. The exhibition will be on view November 9 to December 5, 2020 and will be followed by a series of solo and group presentations by artists from across the gallery’s program of leading contemporary artists and modern masters, including the likes of Alexander Calder, Mary Corse, Tara Donovan, Sam Gilliam, Kenneth Noland, Michal Rovner, Joel Shapiro, and Kiki Smith.

About James Turrell
James Turrell (b. 1943, Los Angeles, California), associated with the Light and Space movement of the 1960s, has dedicated his practice to what he has deemed perceptual art, investigating the materiality of light. Influenced by the notion of pure feeling in pictorial art, Turrell’s earliest work focused on the dialectic between constructing light and painting with light, building on the sensorial experience of space, color, and perception. These interactions became the foundation for Turrell’s oeuvre. Since his earliest Projection Pieces (1966–69), his exploration has expanded through various series, including Skyspaces (1974–), Ganzfelds (1976–), and perhaps most notably, his Roden Crater Project (1977–) near Flagstaff, Arizona. His practice has equally materialized in small-scale works, including architectural models, holograms, and works on paper.
