London—Pace Gallery announces its participation in the 2016 edition of Art Brussels, which runs 22–24 April 2016 at Tours & Taxis, Avenue du Port 86C. At stand B43, Pace will present works by a selection of the gallery’s artists, including Keith Coventry, Lee Ufan and Yto Barrada.
In Keith Coventry’s Estate Paintings, the artist renders bird’s-eye views of estate housing blocks in monochrome geometric formations evocative of Suprematism. Coventry’s work broadly considers the relationship between modernism’s utopian promises and the social realities that emerged in its wake. These investigations form the foundation of his upcoming solo exhibition White Black Gold, which opens at Pace London on 27 April.
The presentation will also include two works from Lee Ufan’s Dialogue series, exemplifying the artist’s decades-long engagement with monochromatic painting. Historic Dansaekhwa works by Lee will be on view outside of the fair at Boghossian Foundation’s exhibition When Process Becomes Form: Dansaekhwa and Korean Abstraction, which closes 24 April.
Yto Barrada, a nominee for the 2016 Prix Marcel Duchamp, investigates the historic and sociocultural conditions that shape contemporary Morocco. The presentation will feature a group of new textiles from Barrada’s Faux Guide body of work, which explores cultural histories of Morocco in relation to archival, institutional and public memory. In September 2016, Museum Leuven will open a solo exhibition of Barrada’s recent work, which has been shown in solo exhibitions in 2015 at Musée d’art contemporain de Nimes, Pace London and the Serralves Museum, Porto.
Pace’s presentation will also include works by Richard Tuttle, paintings by Nigel Cooke and John Hoyland, sculptures by Kevin Francis Gray and Louise Nevelson, video work by Michal Rovner and photographs by Hiroshi Sugimoto.
