Announcing Our Temporary East Hampton Exhibition Space

Opening July 2020

Jun 5, 2020

Marc Glimcher, President and CEO of Pace Gallery, today announced the gallery’s plans to open a temporary exhibition space in East Hampton for the summer of 2020.

The 1,700-sq-ft gallery space, located at 68 Park Place in the heart of East Hampton Village, will launch in early July and run through Columbus Day in October. The building compromises a modest, naturally-lit space to host exhibitions alongside a private viewing room.

The East Hampton project will be inaugurated with a solo exhibition of new drawings by internationally renowned, Japanese artist Yoshitomo Nara. Titled "After all I’m cosmic dust,” this intimate exhibition provides insight into drawing as the center of Nara’s creative world, featuring never-before-exhibited drawings and personal items related to his process and inspiration. The exhibition also marks the release of the artist’s first substantial monograph, written by Yeewan Koon (Phaidon Press, 2020).

The exhibitions to follow will include a series of solo presentations of artists new to Pace, including the gallery’s debut exhibition by Torkwase Dyson, thematic group shows bringing together represented artists and estates, including new works by Loie Hollowell. The presentations will launch in the following order: Yoshitomo Nara, “After all I’m cosmic dust,”; a group show featuring modern and contemporary artists from the gallery's program; Torkwase Dyson; and a show of significant modern masterworks that were intended for the gallery’s presentation at the—now postponed—Art Basel fair in June. The program will also be accompanied by a number of outdoor sculptures situated in neighboring areas. Full program details to follow in the coming weeks.

The gallery will be open to the public with a limited capacity, from Tuesday to Sunday, 11 AM – 6 PM. Pace will take precautions to ensure the safety of visitors, including measures to manage the number of visitors in the space at any given time. Hand sanitizer and Personal Protective Equipment will be provided for visitors to further protect against the spread of COVID-19.

It is anticipated that Pace’s two Manhattan-based locations, at 510 and 540 West 25th St, will be open by appointment later in the summer ahead of re-opening to the public in the fall. Pace will also continue to program online exhibitions, including forthcoming solo presentations by Nathalie Du Pasquier (June 2 – 16), Yin Xiuzhen (June 16 – 30), and Loie Hollowell (June 30 – July 14).
