Pace Galleries

"50 Years at Pace" Makes Vanity Fair Best List

A 50th birthday usually signifies a midlife crisis, but not in the case of the Pace Gallery: this week, in celebration of a half-century of being modern, the institution's four New York outposts are debuting a multi-gallery exhibition featuring 200 of the most seminal works to have been displayed at the gallery over the last five decades. (Think works by Andy Warhol, Robert Rauschenberg, and Roy Lichtenstein, as well as Jasper Johns's "Three Flags," which the Pace sold to the Whitney Museum in 1980 for $1 million—the most a painting by a living artist had ever been sold for at the time.) To get the party started, the Pace will be hosting a star-studded cookout on Thursday under the Highline, transforming a parking lot into a picnic space. Be on the lookout for artist Chuck Close, fashion designers Diane von Furstenberg and Thakoon Panichgul, and Hollywood's once-most-feared-man Michael Ovitz, who are expected to attend.
