Pace London is honoured to present A Strong Sweet Smell of Incense, a momentous exhibition that will take as inspiration the character and career of celebrated art dealer and pioneer, Robert Fraser. Curated by his friend Brian Clarke, this exhibition will showcase many of the luminaries of the American and European contemporary art scenes that passed through his gallery. The Robert Fraser Gallery was one of the preeminent galleries showing both emerging European and American artists in the 1960’s and 80’s in London.

This December, Pace Beijing is launching the fifth installment of the annual “Beijing Voice” exhibition. This is a long-term project and an iconic end-of-year summary devised by Pace Beijing, to objectively showcase and interpret the artistic phenomena and moves that are currently underway in the art field. This year’s “Beijing Voice” follows the same principle as it engages in a discussion of the complex route within artwork, artist and audience, and determines to explore this “on-going” field of relations. Therefore, Pace Beijing is delighted to participate in Unlived by What is Seen curated by artists Sun Yuan and Peng Yu, and independent curator Cui Cancan with its 2,000 sqm exhibition space. 23 of the 33 participating artists will publicly show their practice and exploration.
Opening on December 13th, the exhibition will take place simultaneously at Galleria Continua, Pace Gallery Beijing and Tang Contemporary Art Center and lasts for three months. In addition, there will be four public talks presented after the opening, with an exhibition catalogue scheduled for publication in May 2015.
Pace London is pleased to present an exhibition of new work by the leading British artist Brian Clarke. For more than four decades, Clarke has pioneered new directions in stained glass, extending his practice to painting, sculpture and mosaics. In recognition of the significance of architecture and in situ work in his practice, Clarke will install a new stained glass window specifically designed for the Lexington Street gallery.
Tate Modern's Turbine Hall presents a new commission by Richard Tuttle, entitled I Don't Know, Or The Weave of Textile Language. Featuring Tuttle's textiles, the installation coincides with Whitechapel Gallery's retrospective of the artist's work from the 1960s to the present. These two displays comprise the United Kingdom's largest-ever survey of Richard Tuttle.
As Tuttle has emphasized, the creation of the fabric is integral to understanding the work, which features rich fabrics produced by a textile firm in Gujarat, India that were then attached to a monumental plywood frame. “I guess the job of an artist is to try to find a healthy union of the mechanical and the human,” the artist said.
