Pace Gallery is pleased to participate in the inaugural edition of Frieze Los Angeles.
The gallery has shaped a presentation that charts the evolving relationships between art and technology, featuring works by early innovators, such as Alexander Calder and Robert Rauschenberg, as well as artists working at the vanguard of digital technology today, including Studio Drift, Michal Rovner, Kohei Nawa, teamLab, and Leo Villareal.
Approaching technology not simply as a digital phenomenon but one grounded in an innovative use of materiality and conception of space, the exhibition also showcases artists who continually challenge the traditional rules and boundaries of artistic media, including Lynda Benglis, Tara Donovan, Adam Pendleton, and Arlene Shechet, among others.
This fair presentation will also mark the U.S. debut of a new series of works by Studio Drift, Materialism (2018). In this new body of work, Studio Drift has reduced everyday products, such as a vacuum cleaner, automobile, pencil, and bicycle, to the exact quantity of the specific raw materials which comprise them, shown in the form of blocks. Confronting the viewer on a very elementary level with the objects that surround them, this new work inspires fresh contemplation of the raw materials at our daily disposal.
