Pace is a leading international art gallery representing some of the most influential contemporary artists and estates from the past century, holding decades-long relationships with Alexander Calder, Jean Dubuffet, Barbara Hepworth, Agnes Martin, Louise Nevelson, and Mark Rothko. Pace enjoys a unique U.S. heritage spanning East and West coasts through its early support of artists central to the Abstract Expressionist and Light and Space movements.   


Since its founding by Arne Glimcher in 1960, Pace has developed a distinguished legacy as an artist-first gallery that mounts seminal historical and contemporary exhibitions. Under the current leadership of President and CEO Marc Glimcher, Pace continues to support its artists and share their visionary work with audiences worldwide by remaining at the forefront of innovation. Now in its seventh decade, the gallery advances its mission through a robust global program—comprising exhibitions, artist projects, public installations, institutional collaborations, performances, and interdisciplinary projects. Pace has a legacy in art bookmaking and has published over five hundred titles in close collaboration with artists, with a focus on original scholarship and on introducing new voices to the art historical canon.    


The gallery has also spearheaded explorations into the intersection of art and technology through its new business models, exhibition interpretation tools, and representation of artists cultivating advanced studio practices. As part of its commitment to technologically engaged artists within and beyond its program, Pace launched a hub for its web3 activity, Pace Verso, in November 2021.   


Today, Pace has nine locations worldwide, including a European foothold in London and Geneva, and two galleries in New York—its headquarters at 540 West 25th Street, which welcomed almost 120,000 visitors and programmed 20 shows in its first six months, and an adjacent 8,000 sq. ft. exhibition space at 510 West 25th Street. Pace’s long and pioneering history in California includes a gallery in Palo Alto, which operated from 2016 to 2022. Pace’s engagement with Silicon Valley’s technology industry has had a lasting impact on the gallery at a global level, accelerating its initiatives connecting art and technology as well as its work with experiential artists. Pace consolidated its West Coast activity through its flagship in Los Angeles, which opened in 2022. Pace was one of the first international galleries to establish outposts in Asia, where it operates permanent gallery spaces in Hong Kong and Seoul, as well as an office and viewing room in Beijing. Pace’s satellite exhibition spaces in East Hampton and Palm Beach present continued programming on a seasonal basis.

Current Exhibitions

Matthew Day Jackson

Matthew Day Jackson: Against Nature

May 12, 2023 - July 1, 2023
Pace is pleased to present new works by Matthew Day Jackson at its 510 West 25th Street gallery in New York from May 12 to July 1. This presentation—coinciding with Frieze New York and TEFAF New York—will mark Jackson’s debut solo show with the gallery and his first exhibition in New York in a decade. Titled Against Nature, the artist’s upcoming exhibition will center on a focused body of work that includes painting and sculpture. Through his expansive practice, Jackson explores a wide range of subjects—historical, futuristic, scientific, spiritual, and fantastical. At the core of his work is a deep interest in finding similarities within binaries and dichotomies, particularly the simultaneity of beauty and horror. In his research-based, experimental process, the artist considers conceptual and physical underpinnings equally significant, incorporating combinations of traditional, industrial, and found materials in his work across painting, sculpture, installation, and other mediums. Named for Joris-Karl Huysmans’s 1884 novel Against Nature—in which a French aristocrat named Jean Des Esseintes departs Paris to indulge his obsessive, insatiable desire for luxury and beauty in the countryside, exploiting natural resources for his own aesthetic ends—Jackson’s forthcoming presentation with Pace in New York will be anchored by ten new landscape paintings. Using a semi-autonomous laser process that imbues colors and forms in these works with an otherworldly feel, the artist mines the history of landscape painting, with an eye towards Caspar David Friedrich, Thomas Cole, Albert Bierstadt, and Thomas Moran. Similarly, the work of 19th century photographer Eadweard Muybridge, known primarily for his studies of motion and his learned expertise in darkroom photography, has informed Jackson’s interest in unearthly landscape scenes featuring perspectival distortions and uncanny coloration. With his new paintings, Jackson eschews stylistic signatures to investigate the complexities of authorship and undermine mythologies of artistic “genius.” As part of a process that combines physical and digital modes of making, the artist brings issues of materiality and form—as opposed to gesture and expression—to the fore of his latest works. Replete with art historical allusions, the artist’s new landscape paintings also reference the conventions of landscape in science fiction film and literature, where the strange and familiar converge. Jackson creates these composite works by layering images sourced from landscape photography and painting as well as everyday scenes he has captured on his iPhone. As such, tensions between artifice and authenticity; reality and unreality; ambiguity and clarity cut across these highly detailed, hallucinatory scenes, eliciting curiosity and wonderment. Upending viewers’ expectations and initial impressions, Jackson’s complex works—rife with visual paradoxes—invite questions of medium, materiality, and meaning that are only answered through sustained consideration and interrogation. Uniting visions of suburbia and the sublime, the exhibition’s sensorial offerings will extend to the olfactory realm. An ineffable scent—produced by the artist in collaboration with ArtOlfactionLab team at Bestscent—will linger throughout the gallery space. This immersive element will transport viewers into the imaginary environments and atmospheres of the landscapes on view. The presentation will also include a sculptural work that directly references Huysmans’s novel Against Nature, in which the protagonist, Des Esseintes, uses his wealth to enjoy any and all pleasures of the senses within his own hermetically sealed bubble of privilege. At one point in the story, Des Esseintes commissions a Parisian lapidary to encrust a living tortoise with jewels—he is unphased and unmoved when the tortoise dies upon delivery to his home. Connecting this character’s disregard for expense, labor, and conservation with present-day treatment of the natural environment, Jackson will present a ring inspired by Huysmans’s tortoise narrative in his exhibition. Created through a collaboration and trade between Jackson and designer Solange Azagury-Partridge, the ring, which is owned by the artist, will be displayed in a specially built case. With his inclusion of this piece, Jackson draws attention to his own embodiment of Huysmans’s critique, comparing the insularity of an artist’s studio with Des Esseintes’s self-imposed isolation from the rest of the world.

Nigel Cooke

Nigel Cooke: How the World Became Natural

May 12, 2023 - July 1, 2023
Pace is pleased to present an exhibition of eight monumentally scaled paintings by Nigel Cooke at its 540 West 25th Street gallery. On view from May 12 to July 1, this exhibition will spotlight new, vibrant canvases featuring enactments of duality, tension, opposition, and entropy. Titled How the World Became Natural, the show will coincide with the 2023 editions of Frieze New York and TEFAF New York. Cooke is known for his evocative, atmospheric paintings that unite figurative forms and abstract elements in layered compositions. The artist’s work is informed by a wide range of subjects, including paleontology, neuroscience, classical mythology, and zoology, and his process is often guided by his experiences in different parts of the world and other autobiographical material. In Cooke’s paintings, intricate networks of calligraphic marks serve as portraits of psychological and physical spaces alike, fluctuating between states of balance and collapse. Borrowing its title from paleontologist Loren Eiseley’s 1960 essay describing the evolution of mythic to scientific thinking in the field of natural history, Cooke’s upcoming exhibition with Pace in New York spotlights a selection of large-scale, horizontal paintings created by the artist this year. For these works, Cooke has experimented with an entirely different mode of painting to transport viewers into a world of intense colors and lyrical forms. Instead of building up his compositions with marks layered atop one another in a linear fashion, he has forged these impressionistic new works through a process of erasure. With an eye towards the relationship between the background and foreground of his paintings, Cooke uses colliding and overlapping forms to obscure some elements while accentuating others. In this way, he imbues his works with a sense of immeasurable depth. How the World Became Natural follows Cooke’s recent solo exhibition with Pace in London, where the artist showed six vertical paintings and a group of works on paper. His New York presentation will offer a look into an expanded formal universe that elaborates on the stylistic vocabulary showcased in the English capital. In contrast to those saturated canvases, Cooke’s latest paintings also feature greater nuance in terms of color, tone, and mood. Drawing inspiration from the late works of Titian, Monet, and Turner for his new canvases, Cooke has adopted a more painterly mode of mark making. By way of this approach, his new paintings take on an immersive quality as the viewer moves closer to them, becoming cinematic panoramas when seen from afar. The artist also takes a more comprehensive and grandiose approach to space with these epically scaled works. In constructing a painting, Cooke is always directed by his own intuitive stream of thought originating from a singular subject or personal attachment—something he has seen, read, heard, or felt. The beginnings of any given composition are ultimately replaced by a process through which Cooke understands and comes to terms with a new concept invented by the painting itself. His resulting works are mysterious and ambiguous, replete with fleeting and shapeshifting images that can be interpreted in numerous ways. Each work also bears a poetic, open-ended title that invites a multiplicity of readings. Many of the works in Cooke’s exhibition with Pace in New York meditate on inner life and relationships—the worlds that are all one’s own and the worlds that one shares with other people. Some of the paintings are based on pairs of interlocking figures—these compositions are transformed to tell the story of a relationship through a language of flowing and breaking forms. Expressions of motion and disruption, growth and collapse cut across all of the new works in the show, with their landscape formats allowing for pronounced cycles of surges and interruptions.
