During the opening reception for the exhibition on May 18, our Los Angeles gallery will host a conversation with Alicja Kwade and Pace Founder and Chairman Arne Glimcher, moderated by Pace's Chief Curator Oliver Shultz.

Tracing through lines between Kwade's sculptures and the work of Agnes Martin, who was a close friend of Glimcher, this artist talk is presented by Pace Live, our interdisciplinary platform for live art performances, musical acts, and other events.

Tickets are available at the link (opens in a new window) here.

Portrait of Alicja Kwade

Alicja Kwade

Alicja Kwade is known internationally for sculpture, expansive public installation, film, photography and works on paper that challenge scientific and philosophical concepts by dismantling the boundaries of perception. Her distinctive artistic language involves reflection, repetition, and the deconstruction and reconstruction of everyday objects and natural materials in an effort to explore the essence of our reality and to examine social structures. Often veering towards the absurd and transforming commonly accepted assumptions into open-ended questions, her poetic and mesmerizing oeuvre disrupts familiar systems and searches for new explanations to comprehend our world.

Arne Glimcher Portrait

Arne Glimcher

Arne Glimcher founded Pace Gallery in Boston in 1960 in a small, street-level shop on historic Newbury Street. The first exhibition at the gallery, which Glimcher opened when he was 22 years old, included work by his professors at the Massachuse!s College of Art and Design. The following season, he presented exhibitions by Josef Albers, Louise Nevelson, and Claes Oldenburg. In 1963, the gallery opened in New York City on 57th Street. Today, Glimcher serves as Chairman of Pace Gallery and helms 125 Newbury, a project space he opened in New York’s Tribeca neighborhood in 2022. Named for the address of Pace’s first-ever space in Boston, 125 Newbury operates in association with Pace, presenting up to five exhibitions per year with a focus on thematic group shows and emerging artists, including artists both within and beyond Pace’s program. Glimcher also continues to organize exhibitions at the gallery’s global locations.
