Booth B11
545 West 30th Street
New York

Pace’s booth will spotlight works by Torkwase Dyson, whose practice examines environmental racism as well as the history and future of black spatial liberation strategies, and Fred Wilson, whose work challenges assumptions of history, culture, race, and conventions of display. Pace will also feature a shimmering wall installation cast from recycled silver by Maya Lin, whose site-responsive installation focusing on the ravages of climate change on woodlands around the world will open immediately following the fair on May 10, 2021 at Madison Square Park in New York. An online exhibition on Pace’s website, on view May 5—14, 2021 with a preview on May 4, 2021, will complement the gallery’s fair presentation, making the booth accessible to those unable to attend the fair in person. Pace will also be participating in the fair’s online viewing room at (opens in a new window)

The gallery will further present works by recent additions to Pace’s roster such as Robert Nava and Marina Perez Simão, alongside works by other gallery artists, creating a rich conversation in form and medium that invites deep looking for the first in-person fair the gallery has participated in within the U.S. in over a year.

As part of its Pace Live program, the gallery will participate in Frieze’s tribute to the Vision & Justice Project and its Founder Sarah Elizabeth Lewis by hosting a series of video screenings from the Vision & Justice Project Convening at Pace’s space at 508 West 25th Street. Videos will include performances by Amanda Gorman and Carrie Mae Weems; conversations centering on race, culture, and civic space; and interviews between artists and art historians, including Hank Willis Thomas and Cheryl Finley, among other highlights from the convening. The Vision & Justice Project is dedicated to examining art’s central role in understanding the relationship between race and citizenship in the United States.

Concurrent with Frieze New York, on May 5, 2021, Pace will open Agnes Martin: The Distillation of Color, featuring a range of paintings by Martin from the 1970s to the early 1990s, at the gallery’s New York headquarters, as well as Lynda Benglis: An Alphabet of Forms, featuring six new large-scale works by the artist made over the past three years. This presentation will run concurrent with the artist’s solo exhibition at the National Gallery of Art in Washington D.C., on view May – December 2021, featuring sculptures, paintings, drawings, prints, and videos by the artist, drawn from the museum’s permanent collection. Claes & Coosje: A Duet, celebrating the collaborative spirit that animated Claes Oldenburg and the late Coosje van Bruggen’s artistic achievements and romantic partnership, will also remain on view at Pace’s gallery at 540 West 25th Street for the duration of the fair.
