Paris—Pace Gallery is pleased to announce its participation in the first edition of artmonte-carlo, which runs from 29 April to 1 May 2016. At booth C7, Pace will present works by a group of artists who engage a range of media, including digital video, painting, photography and sculpture including Alexander Calder, Alfred Jensen, Josef Albers, Sol LeWitt, Pavel Pepperstein, Hiroshi Sugimoto, Richard Poussette-Dart, Antoni Tàpies, teamLab, Kevin Francis Gray, Lee Ufan, Zhang Huan etc.
Since the 1970s, Hiroshi Sugimoto has addressed conditions of time and light inherent to the medium of photography. In his iconic Seascapes featured on the booth, the artist uses photographic techniques dating to the nineteenth century to create long-exposure photographs of bodies of water in black and white that explore time and history.
Featured also is the collective teamLab who similarly addresses time and perspective in their interactive installations and digital videos. A collective of scientists, engineers, designers, and artists, teamLab draws on art historical notions of time and space in Japanese art and reinterprets and them through dynamic and interactive digital works.
A seminal member of the New York School, Richard Pousette-Dart outlived most of his Abstract Expressionist peers by nearly two decades, in which he expanded upon his work from the 1960s and developed an aesthetic rooted in his particular cosmology. His 1985 painting Le Jardin Rouge demonstrates this style, feature a field of mostly red painted in points onto the canvas.
Kevin Francis Gray’s sculptural practice conveys an unflinching dedication to realism. Focusing on the human body, Gray’s work extracts expressiveness through postures of the human body and their expression in traditional materials, marble especially.
