Pace Gallery is pleased to announce its representation of the Tony Smith Estate. "We represented Tony Smith during his lifetime,” says Arne Glimcher. "That generation of Abstract Expressionists and early Minimalists are the bedrock the gallery is built upon and Tony is inextricable from that milieu." Smith approached abstraction as a spiritual exercise; rather than a product of conscious calculation, his art was derived from the unconscious. His minimal sculptures transcend history and connect him to many of Pace’s great artists, including Joel Shapiro, Alexander Calder, Robert Irwin and Louise Nevelson.
