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.
