Wang Guangle

Oct 10, 2014 – Nov 01, 2014

New paintings by the Chinese artist. The restrained, fundamental practice of a non-narrative art in the Terrazzo series has developed into a calm meditation on life, something destined to fade away finally.

 

Time brings about a perceptible spatial change as the center of the picture subtly expands, the way space twists when an object moves through it at the speed of light. Compared with this formal purity, the title Coffin Paint—its Chinese title translates literally as “lacquer of longevity”—carries serious sentimental and cultural connotations.

Xiao Yu

Ground

Mar 27, 2014 – Apr 23, 2014

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.

Keith Sonnier

Elysian Plain + Early Works

Jan 24, 2014 – Feb 22, 2014

Keith Sonnier was part of a group of artists who challenged preconceived notions of sculpture in the late 1960s by experimenting with materials. In 1968, he began creating wall sculptures using incandescent light and sheer fabric before shifting his attention to neon. The linear quality of neon allowed Sonnier to draw in space with light and color while colored light interacted with the surrounding architecture. Elysian Plain + Early Works will present 12 works in neon, featuring the first series created in the artist’s new studio in Bridgehampton. A catalogue with an introduction by art historian Richard Shiff will accompany the exhibition.

Sol LeWitt

Horizontal Progressions

Jan 24, 2014 – Feb 22, 2014

Widely regarded as one of the most important and influential artists of the last half of the 20th century, Sol LeWitt helped revolutionize the definition of art in the 1960s. Early in his career, the cube became the basic module for his artistic inquiry—“the grammatical device”—from which his work developed. Sol LeWitt used the cube to create structures in a myriad of variations, usually in series, over the course of his more than 40-year career. This winter, Pace will bring together seven structures from 1991 in this rare exhibition of a complete series.
