Pace Gallery is proud to announce the opening of a temporary exhibition space in Menlo Park, California from April 16th through June 30th, 2014. Located in the former Tesla headquarters at 300 El Camino Real in the heart of Silicon Valley, Pace Menlo Park will present two exhibitions: Alexander Calder: The Art of Invention, from April 16th to May 13th, 2014 and Tara Donovan: Untitled, from May 22nd to June 30th, 2014.
Ultimately, what a successful portrait does is that it presents the impossibility of summarizing who someone is—how any kind of representation is ultimately a conversation with some form of abstraction. Having spent several hours with David and three years working on this piece, I don't have a view of who he is per se. The piece is about listening, and language and image, so hopefully it moves in many directions at once, and doesn't present a simplistic view of who David Hilliard is.

In a recent interview with Michael Skafidas of the Huffington Post, Lucas Samaras discusses the history of self-portraiture and the role of narcissism within it. Samaras’s Offerings From A Restless Soul is on view at the Metropolitan Museum of Art through June 1. His works are also currently featured in What is a Photograph? at the International Center of Photography in New York through May 4.
In fact, my work is comprised of two components: opening and fitting together. In this course of events, I try to find the inherent power of the material, the hidden power. If an artwork only has one answer, it is a poison that stirs up public sentiment by false statements. It is brainwashing. It is conspiracy. I create artwork based on one’s practice, sparking the audience to mobilize their prior experiences and advance them into a state of reflection. An artist can be persistently attached to single point. An artist can do useless and foolish things. As time advances, an artist can, on the contrary, genuinely approach wisdom. Even if they integrate a picture and symbol, if there on the spiritual level there is not a consistent awareness, then an artist’s practice can change into vagrancy, drifting with the waves and going with the flow.
Lucas Samaras: Offerings from a Restless Soul opened at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York on February 24, 2014. Designed with input from the artist, the exhibition features over 60 works drawn primarily from the Museum’s rich collection of highly idiosyncratic work made by Lucas Samaras.
Showcasing his broad range of media and techniques, the exhibition includes both abstract works from the 1960s and digitally based pieces from the past decade. Located in the Lila Acheson Wallace Wing for Modern and Contemporary Art, North and South Mezzanines, Galleries 914 and 916, the show is on view through June 1, 2014.
Pace Gallery is pleased to announce that Robert Mangold's and Adam Pendleton's exhibitions are now open to the public at 510 and 534 West 25th Street, respectively. Both shows will remain open through May 3.
This spring, Michal Rovner's work will be included in the photographic project ToledoContemporánea, presented by Ivorypress and curated by Elena Ochoa Foster.

The exhibition is on view through June 14, 2014, open to the public everyday from 10:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m.
