Press Release

  • Seattle Art Fair

    New York—Pace is pleased to announce its participation in the inaugural Seattle Art Fair, which will be held at the CenturyLink Field Event Center from July 30 to August 2, 2015. At booth 105, Pace will present a selection of work in a variety of media by Tara Donovan, Sol LeWitt, Maya Lin, Yoshitomo Nara, Michal Rovner, Hiroshi Sugimoto and teamLab.

    Pace’s booth will include two recent works by Tara Donovan, both utilizing Slinky®s, the iconic, stair-descending, helical-spring toy. Donovan’s Untitled, 2014, is a wall-mounted sculpture composed of multiple steel Slinky®s which the artist attaches together to form continuous Möbius-like loops. A related work on paper, Untitled, 2015, is a large monoprint created on a hydraulic press by placing a matrix of linked Slinky®s on the printing plate, spraying the plate with ink, then removing the matrix and pressing the plate to paper so that the looped coils are captured in negative, as if in an x-ray.

    Examples of Tara Donovan’s Slinky series are currently on view through October 18, 2015 at the Parrish Art Museum in Water Mill, New York, as part of the museum’s Platform series of site-responsive exhibitions. On August 1, Jupiter Artland in Edinburgh will open an exhibition of her monumental installations.

    Pace’s booth will feature recent works by the innovative, multidisciplinary Japan-based collective teamLab. Since its founding in 2001, teamLab has created works that explore and elide the distinctions between art, technology, and nature, as well as differing forms of spatial representation in Japanese and Western art. The group counts among its members programmers, mathematicians, architects, CG animators, web designers, artists, editors and other specialists.

    As part of the fair’s Talks Contemporary program, Maya Lin will deliver a lecture at the Seattle Art Museum’s Plestcheef Auditorium on Wednesday, July 29 at 7 p.m. Pace’s booth will feature works by Maya Lin that memorialize bodies of water such as the San Francisco Bay and the Niagara River by evoking an aerial view of their topographies in sculptures made of silver.

    Also on view at Pace’s booth will be works by Sol LeWitt, Yoshitomo Nara, Michal Rovner and Hiroshi Sugimoto.
