Pace Gallery is pleased to announce its representation of Acconci Studio. Vito Acconci (1940 – 2017) is a subversive and radical maker whose work expands writing into activities, installations, architecture and design. One of the most inventive figures to emerge during the Post-Pop era of the late 1960s and mid-1970s, Acconci’s influence permeates today’s creative landscape. Working closely with Acconci Studio, Pace Gallery will present the broad scope of Acconci’s work—including projects that were never realized—and will continue to advance international appreciation and engagement with his iconic practice.
“A truly innovative creator and agitator who was foundational to contemporary art today, Acconci fits perfectly within Pace’s program of leading 20th and 21st century artists and estates,” said Marc Glimcher, Pace Gallery President and CEO. “There’s still so much of his practice to uncover and reexamine and we’re thrilled to join with Maria Acconci to share Vito Acconci’s vision and expand his legacy around the world.”
