Acaye Kerunen

Through her multidisciplinary practice, Acaye Kerunen seeks to dismantle the hierarchies of fine art and craft, elevating women’s labor within socio-political systems. Her mutable, expansive installations—for which materiality is a central component—can be understood as living artworks. Ahead of her Pace debut at our 2022 Frieze London booth, Kerunen spoke from her London studio about the influence of craft on her practice and how her work embodies rich artistic legacies originating in Africa’s Great Lakes region.

Kylie Manning

Using brushwork, light, and balance, Kylie Manning captures moments within her personal history, such as her time working on Alaskan fishing boats and memories of surfing in Mexico. On the occasion of her inclusion in our 2022 Frieze London presentation, Manning spoke with us from her Brooklyn studio on the “hyperpersonal” nature of her ethereal oil paint compositions.

Maysha Mohamedi

In her abstract paintings that function as maps of sensation, cognition, and experience, Maysha Mohamedi explores the expressive possibilities of color. On the occasion of Pace’s presentation at Paris+ par Art Basel 2022, where the gallery will show a new work by Mohamedi, the artist spoke from her Los Angeles studio about her deeply personal approach to mark making and use of color.

Mika Tajima

At the heart of Mika Tajima’s multidisciplinary practice is a profound inquiry into the conditions of human agency and self-determinacy in built and virtual spaces. On the occasion of our 2022 Frieze London presentation, Tajima invites us to her Brooklyn studio, where she discusses how her work approaches concepts of performance, control, and freedom.
