We are pleased to announce the appointment of Mark Beasley as the Curatorial Director of Pace Live beginning in September 2019. Beasley, who was previously the Curator of Media and Performance Art at the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden in Washington D.C., will spearhead Pace Live—a multidisciplinary program that encompasses music, dance, film, performance, and conversation. Programmed specifically for Pace’s new flagship space, Pace Live—occupying a 150-seat multi-use gallery—will give artists, scholars, and other critical forces in the field the opportunity and flexibility to experiment across a range of disciplines and connect with the public in new ways.
Based in the gallery’s new global headquarters in New York opening on September 14, 2019, Beasley will work closely with Pace’s international leadership team, led by President and CEO Marc Glimcher, as part of the gallery’s expanding curatorial department directed by Andria Hickey, Senior Director and Curator. In this newly developed position, Beasley will create a dynamic new performance program that serves as a site for innovation and responds to the diverse practices of today’s artists.
