We are pleased to announce the release of five new titles in fall 2021: Agnes Martin: The Distillation of Color, Thomas Nozkowski: The Last Paintings, A Tribute, Adrian Ghenie: The Hooligans, Mark Rothko 1968: Clearing Away, and a limited-edition dubplate issued as part of Torkwase Dyson’s upcoming performances and multimedia installation Liquid a Place.

The release of the dubplate in conjunction with Dyson’s performance and installation, which will be staged at Pace’s new London space this fall, marks the gallery’s first foray into music publishing.

Agnes Martin: The Distillation of Color, 2021

Agnes Martin

The Distillation of Color, 2021

In conjunction with Pace’s recent New York presentation of Agnes Martin’s paintings from the 1970s to early 1990s, Pace Publishing will release Agnes Martin: The Distillation of Color in October. The book features an introduction by Pace President and CEO Marc Glimcher and an illustrated chronology of this critical period of Martin’s career. It also includes essays by writers Durga Chew-Bose, Bruce Hainley, and Olivia Laing. Reflecting on Martin’s profound impact on contemporary art and culture, this publication foregrounds new voices in relation to the artist’s life and career.

“Martin once talked of wanting a viewer to be able to step inside her paintings, to access the pure land she’d documented and secured. But part of the extraordinary nature of her work is that it also attests to the enormous danger, risk, labor that such a vision required.”

“With time, Nozkowski grew more confident about orchestrating the full range of his cognitive faculties in service of a good picture. His was an abstraction of the whole mind.”
