Art Review comments, “Glimcher Industries – aka Pace – has steadily extended its reach and that of its artists over the past year. Yes, Marc Glimcher ably oversees the global operation, but note that the Rothko/Sugimoto show that opened its London branch last October was the brainchild of Andrea Glimcher, who was also instrumental in the biggest crossover event of the spring: Jay Z’s Picasso Baby, which was filmed at the gallery.
Milly Glimcher’s Happenings: New York, 1958–63 was awarded best show in a commercial gallery by the International Association of Art Critics. And Arne Glimcher, not to be outdone, was appointed Officer in the National Order of the Legion of Honour in France (merci!). With a family like this at the helm, there’s little wonder why 13 Pace artists presented projects at the Venice Biennale; or why major James Turrell installations appeared simultaneously at LACMA, the MFA Houston and the Guggenheim in New York.”
