Pace Launches Series of Curated Exhibitions In Online Viewing Rooms

Friday, Mar 19, 2020

As a response to its temporary gallery closures, Marc Glimcher has announced that Pace Gallery will expand its online viewing room tool to the public, and will publish a series of thematic and solo artist exhibitions during the period of closures caused by COVID-19 and beyond.

Presented over the course of the coming weeks, these digital exhibitions have been organized by Pace’s dealers and curators. They include a group exhibition dedicated to ceramics, an exhibition of works inspired by nature, and a focus on photography on the topic of America’s cultural history. Many of the exhibitions directly engage with human experience in this unprecedented climate, including a solo artist exhibition devoted to works on the theme of domesticity by American artist and cartoonist Saul Steinberg (launching Monday, March 23), and a meditative group presentation on “stillness,” titled A Swiftly Tilting Planet (launching Tuesday, March 31).

Each online exhibition is supported by thoughtful interpretative materials—both scholarly and playful—created by Pace’s curatorial team, including texts, audio, and comparative visual materials culled from the gallery’s vast digital archives and further afield.

Pace’s Senior Director and Lead Curator, Andria Hickey, comments:

“Through our online exhibition space we hope to offer a rich contextual lens through which to engage with our artists’ work. This is a time when people are seeking solace, and we believe art has the power to bring comfort and help us parse this difficult situation together.”

Opening this tool to the public enables widespread access to the gallery’s expansive roster of artists and the stories that shape their practices during a time that necessitates creative inspiration, engagement, and perspective.Exhibitions will be published at regular intervals and will be available online for a period of two weeks.
