Announcing our New Gallery in Palm Beach

Opening November 2020

Pace Gallery is pleased to announce plans for a new seasonal exhibition space in Palm Beach, opening early November and running through spring 2021.

The gallery will launch in Palm Beach with a presentation dedicated to three unique aperture wall installations by California-based artist James Turrell, whose work draws attention to the presence of light and its transformation of our perception of space. The exhibition will be on view November 9 to December 5, 2020 and will be followed by a series of solo and group presentations by artists from across the gallery’s program of leading contemporary artists and modern masters, including the likes of Alexander Calder, Mary Corse, Tara Donovan, Sam Gilliam, Kenneth Noland, Michal Rovner, Joel Shapiro, and Kiki Smith.

Pace will be situated within The Royal Poinciana Plaza, a landmarked architectural structure built in the late 1950s by world-renowned local architect John L. Volk and owned and operated by WS Development, alongside other contemporary art spaces occupied by Acquavella Galleries and Sotheby’s auction house. Located in the popular winter destination of South Florida, Palm Beach is renowned for its active art scene and is a hub for local galleries, art collectors, and internationally respected institutions such as the Norton Museum of Art and The Society of the Four Arts.

Exhibitions will be open to the public and the gallery will offer extended hours by appointment seven days per week. Pace will follow local safety guidelines to protect visitors against the spread of COVID-19, including requirements for social distancing, face masks, and frequent disinfecting.

Pace’s Palm Beach gallery space will be helmed by Vice President Adam Sheffer, who will temporarily relocate for the winter season. Adam Sheffer, Vice President, comments:

“Our new venture is primarily an opportunity to re-engage with our collectors and other colleagues in South Florida, a place that has become vital to the international arts ecology. There are remarkable works being made in our artists’ studios and we felt compelled to show them this season—Palm Beach seemed the ideal place. We saw enormous success with our gallery in East Hampton this summer. Visitors so appreciated the unparalleled experience of viewing works of art ‘in real life’ at a time when museums and galleries had been closed for months. We plan to bring that same excitement to Palm Beach.”

Samantha Perry David, President of WS Development, comments:

“When we first created The Royal we committed to bring the best of everything to Palm Beach. Pace, Acquavella, and Sotheby’s unquestionably represent the best of the best and their arrival will make The Royal an unrivaled center of gravity in today’s art world. How proud we are to welcome them. How humbled we are to help bring these spectacular works of art into more people’s lives. And how excited we are to watch as our customers stumble upon a glowing Turrell which turns a day of shopping and gelato into a day of magic.”

The Palm Beach gallery will be Pace’s ninth location worldwide. In July, Pace opened a temporary gallery space in East Hampton which will continue to be programmed throughout the winter with an exhibition by artist duo Elmgreen & Dragset (October 8 – November 15, 2020) followed by a show of drawings by renowned local artist Saul Steinberg (November 19, 2020 – January 17, 2021). Pace has also re-opened its two New York City locations to the public for the fall season with exhibitions by Jean Dubuffet, Robert Mangold, Julian Schnabel (all through October 24, 2020), and Nina Katchadourian (through December 12, 2020). For exhibitions at 510 and 540 West 25th Street, visitors are required to schedule a visit in advance.
