Profile

Representing over forty renowned contemporary artists, The Pace Gallery's roster and scholarly bent lend it the air of a mini-museum. The focus is often on historical shows, such as "Mark Rothko: A Painter's Progress, The Year 1949," or the frequent revisits of Picasso's drawings and Calder's models. While Pace's downtown gallery seeks out younger talents, the 57th Street location sticks with new work by living art world giants like Robert Rauschenberg, Kiki Smith, and Chuck Close. I.M. Pei designed the public second floor viewing space, part of Pace’s entire Midtown office building, which manages to be polished without being corporate and reflects the gallery’s commitment to minimalism. A family-run operation founded by Arne Glimcher in 1960, Pace established itself on 57th Street three years later and merged with Wildenstein & Co. in 1993, splitting amicably in April 2010. Numerous other resourceful partnerships include co-ownership of Pace Prints, Pace Primitive, and Pace/MacGill, with whom it shares clients and artists.
