Pace Gallery is pleased to announce the opening of a new gallery in Hong Kong, its second in the city and its fourth space in Asia. Designed by Bonetti/Kozerski Architecture – the same firm designing Pace’s new flagship gallery opening in fall 2019 in Chelsea, New York – the gallery will open during Art Basel Hong Kong on March 26, 2018 in the H Queen’s building in the city’s Central District. Pace will inaugurate the gallery with an exhibition dedicated to Japanese artist Yoshitomo Nara, coupled with an exhibition of works on paper and paintings by New York based artist Loie Hollowell in its original Hong Kong gallery.
“We’re very excited to open our new gallery in H Queen’s – exhibiting in the company of Pearl, David, Iwan and Manuela – this center will be a phenomenal addition to Hong Kong’s growing arts ecosystem,” says Marc Glimcher. “The arts renaissance that has been underway in Asia for the last 30 years or so has triggered a global shift and brought new energy to artists, collectors, and institutions across the art world. It has been a privilege to play a role in that evolution for the last decade, particularly to work with many of the artists who have shaped that renaissance, and our engagement with the Asian market continues to inform the way we see and work around the world. The opening of the new gallery in Hong Kong represents an important continuation of this commitment to the region, but certainly not the culmination.”
