Pace is pleased to present a group exhibition, Tropic of Cancer, at its Palm Beach gallery.

On view from February 9 to March 12, this lively, thematic presentation will spotlight paintings, sculptures, drawings, photographs, and digital works inspired by the landscapes of the tropics. This show will bring together vibrant artworks created across varied time periods and geographies in a bountiful, spirited tableau.

The exhibition will feature work by 30 intergenerational artists within and beyond the gallery’s program, including Alexander Calder, Nathalie Du Pasquier, Sonia Gomes, Brice Guilbert, David Hockney, Loie Hollowell, Peter Hujar, Alex Katz, Kiki Kogelnik, Jeff Koons, Richard Learoyd, Robert Longo, Kylie Manning, Maurice Mboa, Beatriz Milhazes, Richard Misrach, Elizabeth Murray, Irving Penn, Marina Perez Simâo, Alejandro Piñeiro Bello, Josh Smith, Mika Tajima, and teamLab.

Bringing together an array of colors and forms, the works on view depict expansive seascapes, diverse flora and fauna, and otherworldly abstractions. Exhibited in conversation with one another, they conjure visions of real and imagined environments teeming with life.
