Dan Walsh

Dan Walsh: Flexible Minimalism



Working with Pace Prints over the span of thirteen years, Dan Walsh has created prints in almost every medium. He allows the ideas of Minimalism and material investigation to inspire, but not limit, his printmaking practice. Our eighth online exhibition "Dan Walsh: Flexible Minimalism" delves into one of Pace Prints' most intentional, yet unpredictable collaborative relationships. The show traces the threads of seriality, materiality and modularity that constitute both the collective unity and the individual uniqueness of Walsh's prints.

Helen Frankenthaler

Helen Frankenthaler: In Her Mind's Eye



Pace Prints is happy to present "Helen Frankenthaler: In Her Mind's Eye," an exploration of the artist's woodcut prints. Our seventh online presentation, this exhibition offers a deep dive into Ukiyo-e woodblock printing, and Frankenthaler's transformative approach to the traditional Japanese technique. Master Printer Yasu Shibata, who printed Frankenthaler's woodcuts over the last two decades of her life, guides us through the making of these iconic prints.

James Turrell

James Turrell: Printing Light



In 2013, James Turrell’s installation "Aten Reign," at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, transformed Frank Lloyd Wright’s iconic rotunda into what the artist called, “an architecture of space created with light.” Beginning that year, Turrell collaborated with Pace Prints master intaglio, ukiyo-e woodcut and digital printmakers to synthesize the experience of Aten Reign onto paper. "James Turrell: Printing Light" takes a closer look at the philosophical and technical nuance it takes to translate the artist’s luminosity to printed ink.

Austin Lee

Austin Lee: Virtual Δ Object



We are pleased to share our fifth online exhibition and our first solo presentation of the work of painter and sculptor, Austin Lee. Modeling his images from computer-based drawings through complex material reincarnations, Austin Lee doesn't mimic reality via digital means, rather he seizes on the uniquely open and unencumbered possibilities of the virtual to create new objects, applying his deft rendering skills to make the whimsical physical. Lee began work in the Pace Editions printshop in 2019 on an ambitious series of monoprints that expand his broad range of techniques even further. As he continues to develop his approach to printmaking, this exhibition takes us inside his process.

Keith Haring

Keith Haring & William S. Burroughs: Apocalypse



On what would have been Keith Haring’s 62nd birthday, we present Apocalypse (1988), a portfolio created by Keith Haring and William S. Burroughs. Burroughs’ voice is heard while viewing Keith Haring’s enduring works of art, in the series they created in response to the AIDS epidemic. Today, we listen with a new sense of understanding, as we are dealing with a global, rather than generational, plague. This recording is from Burroughs’ Dead City Radio, an album released by Island Records in 1990, and dedicated to Keith Haring.

Leonardo Drew



In his 30-plus years as an artist, Leonardo Drew’s installations have grown both massive in scale and intricate in detail. Through his experimentation with materials, the work has become more complex. Starting in 2012, Drew's collaborations with Pace Paper's Ruth Lingen and Akemi Martin have led him to experiment with the materiality of paper and allowed him to create work on an intimate scale as well as the largest cast paper pieces ever attempted.⁠ This exhibition traces the history of their collaboration and gives a glimpse into Drew's process in his own words.

Pat Steir

Pat Steir: "A Good Process for Thinking"



Pat Steir has collaborated with Pace Prints for over twenty years. In 2015, Master Printer Jo Watanabe installed a complete screenprinting workshop inside of Steir's studio to create the largest and most ambitious series of prints in her career. The resulting work is the culmination of Steir's fifty-year evolution as a printmaker, over which she has forged a unique and organic approach to the medium, where gesture, time and chance guide the outcome of each unique print. As this project reached its conclusion, we visited Steir in her studio, where she shared her thoughts on printmaking and her philosophy of art in general. What emerged is an intimate portrait of one of the most singular and original artists of our era.

Peter Saul

Peter Saul: No Convictions



Pace Prints is pleased to announce our first online exhibition, "Peter Saul: No Convictions." Narrated in video and audio by Saul himself, the show offers a survey of Saul's lifelong engagement with prints as an extension of his drawing and painting practices.

Portfolio



July 8, 2021 - August 13, 2021
On view beginning July 8 is Portfolio, a spotlight on iconic portfolios published by Pace Prints since the 1980s. This exhibition will focus on the works of Jenny Holzer, Robert Mangold, Vik Muniz, Wangechi Mutu, Ed Ruscha, and Shahzia Sikander. Concurrently, our Project Room will feature Terry Winters’ 1992 portfolio of 25 etchings entitled Field Notes. These exhibitions will be on view through August 13, 2021 at Pace Prints, 521 West 26th Street, 3rd floor.

Terry Winters

Terry Winters: Field Notes



July 8, 2021 - August 13, 2021
Field Notes (1992) is a portfolio of twenty-five etchings by Terry Winters, born of the second collaboration between the artist and master printer Aldo Crommelynck. Field Notes utilizes nearly every method of intaglio printmaking. Crommelynck, a world-renowned printmaker who collaborated with Pablo Picasso for twenty years, was able to create the subtle tonalities and inky black fields in these etchings with aquatint, using the open-bite, spitbite and sugarlift methods. In addition, these etchings are directly related to, and were created alongside, works that the artist exhibited in his mid-career retrospective at the Whitney Museum in 1991. Field Notes is in the permanent collections of The Metropolitan Museum of Art, The New York Public Library, The Detroit Institute of Art and The Tate. This year also marks the 20th Anniversary of Terry Winters: Printed Works at The Metropolitan Museum of Art. Nan Rosenthal wrote in the catalog for that exhibition that Winters’ pursuit was “to propose visually, through his essentially abstract art, how the world at present is linked in ways we cannot always visualize but constantly experience.” Winter’s Field Notes portfolio exemplifies that proposition, showing us a natural world in abstraction. The Field Notes portfolio is currently on view at 521 West 26th Street, 3rd Floor, in a dedicated project room alongside Portfolio: a larger exhibition dedicated to works created in portfolios.

Innovation



January 16, 2021 - February 13, 2021
On view at Pace Prints, 521 West 26th Street, is Innovation, a group exhibition highlighting extraordinary works created in the Pace Editions studios over the past decade. The monotypes, unique works and editions in this exhibition demonstrate the unlimited possibilities of printmaking. Adam Pendleton’s Untitled, a unique set of fourteen relief prints with stenciled paper pulp, comprises the main wall of the gallery. Made using the wet papermaking process, Pendleton used stenciled paper pulp to create impossible to mimic marks. Widely recognized for his multi-disciplinary practice which seamlessly moves between mediums and genres, Pendleton deploys language and appropriated imagery in what he calls “Black Dada.” In his words, “Black Dada is a way to talk about the future while talking about the past.” Tara Donovan’s Untitled (Pin Prints) are editions, though non-traditional in their execution. Donovan utilizes everyday objects to explore transformative effects of accumulation and aggregation, which she brings to her printmaking. While seemingly random, the patterns in these prints are formed through the calculated act of arranging one sewing pin after another as they are hammered into a matrix. The heads of the pins are inked and transferred to create the image on the paper. Daniel Heidkamp’s Le Golfe is an accumulated scene, taking the viewer to the French Riviera. Included in the artist’s most recent exhibition, Amphora, with Pace Prints in 2020, Le Golfe is a tour de force in collage. Building the surfaces of rugged French cliffs and Mediterranean seascapes, Heidkamp layers richly pigmented Canson papers in every possible tone and tint. Taking cues from conceptual and minimal art, Dan Walsh constructs his work from self-imposed rules and procedures. For Profiles VI, Walsh created a jigsaw puzzle style matrix, where each part was moveable and could be inked separately. Using this matrix, Walsh was able to create a series of six progressive relief monoprints whose colors moved from light to dark. In subject matter, each composition is compiled of fifteen images, three rows of five, diverted vertically in two halves. Each row is categorized by his source imagery: the top is architectural, the middle is busts and vessels, and the bottom is vegetable and organic. Also included in this exhibition are works by Peter Halley, Nicola López and Qin Feng.

New Dimensions



August 4, 2020 - September 12, 2020
Pace Prints is pleased to present New Dimensions: Beyond the Boundaries of Printmaking a thematic group show to be presented simultaneously online and by appointment at 521 West 26th Street, through September 12. Pace Prints has long championed multi-dimensional prints, starting with Lucas Samaras’s 1968 Book, a boundary-breaking multiple that functioned as both sculpture and artist book. This founding project was followed by multiples made of cast resin, cast paper, silkscreened canvas and scrolls by Jean Dubuffet and Louise Nevelson in the 1970s. The goal at Pace Prints has always been to give an artist every possibility, even while making projects that challenge the broadly accepted concept of prints as ink on paper.​ New Dimensions focuses on six artists who exemplify experimentation in printmaking in the 21st Century: Jane Hammond, Arturo Herrera, Nicola López, Santi Moix, Wangechi Mutu and Kiki Smith. These works employ a wide range of printmaking techniques (collagraph, linocut, etching, screenprinting, digital printmaking) and a host of applied materials (mylar, vellum, collaged and cut paper, felt and gold leaf).

Nigel Cooke



February 1, 2020 - March 7, 2020
Pace Prints is pleased to present a series of new monoprints and etchings by Nigel Cooke at its 521 West 26th Street location. This is Cooke’s first exhibition with the gallery, and the artist’s first body of work in the monoprint medium. The exhibition will be on view February 1—March 7, 2020, and an opening reception will be held Friday January 31, 6–8pm . Nigel Cooke is known for his large-scale paintings that drift between the figurative world and the abstract. His subject matter is drawn from intimate personal memories, art history, and the natural landscape. In this new body of work, Cooke takes images and themes from his paintings, and gives them up to chance. Embracing the immediacy of the monoprint process, he paints directly onto a metal plate that is then run through the press. Unlike traditional painting, this technique of printing reverses all imagery, leaving the artist with less control. Cooke relies on his intuition, gives himself over to the separation of intention from result, and embraces the surprises that come out in the process. The build-up of multiple passes through the press produces what Cooke refers to as an “X-ray effect,” showing the process of how an image comes into being and exposing visible corrections and revisions. Viewing the prints as “remixes” of his paintings, Cooke uses this layering to further investigate the human relationship to nature and to blend aspects of life that do not typically go together. He places a bodily mass within a grid of natural structures; humanoid figures facing animals are forced to confront their narcissism of projecting onto nature. This juxtaposition is seen in Cap de Barbaria, where figure upon figure becomes a nucleus of chaotic line. Arms and legs condense, forming a subject that is no longer discernably human. This mass of entanglement thrashes between foreground and background, in a setting that, from the work’s title, holds a likeness to the rocky and desolate terrain of the Balearic Islands in the Spanish archipelago. The figure at odds with its landscape is seen again in Beasts of Burden, a set of two soft-ground etchings with pochoir. Cooke views this pair of etchings as a concretized version of what he learned through the monoprint process; etched on a copper plate, this image becomes fixed, no longer subject to the liquid behavior of ink. This time, the figures are not only confronting nature, but also each other. Facing one another, masked male and female forms become alienated from their distinct humanness. Pushing and pulling against their landscape of eyes, animals, cigarettes and branches, the figures remain the dominant beasts of the image.   Nigel Cooke was born in Manchester, England, in 1973 and lives and works in London and Kent. His work is included in public collections around the world, including the British Council, London, the Astrup Fearnley Museet for Moderne Kunst, Oslo, the Sammlung Goetz Collection, Munich, the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York, the Hammer Museum, Los Angeles, the Honart Museum, Tehran, the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles, the Museum of Modern Art, New York, and the Tate, London. Cooke shows with Pace Gallery internationally and has a one-person exhibition at its 540 West 25th Street, New York space, January 31—February 29, 2020.
