NEW YORK, NY.- Pace Gallery announced its representation of artist Mary Corse in New York—in addition to the gallery’s current representation of the artist in Hong Kong, Beijing and Seoul. Pace will first present Corse’s work at its gallery in Hong Kong’s H Queen’s building in March 2019 to coincide with Art Basel Hong Kong, followed by an exhibition at its new global headquarters at 540 West 25th Street in New York in 2020. This week at Art Basel Miami Beach, the gallery will feature a Light Box by Corse from 1968/2018 in its exhibition Lightness of Being. Pace’s representation and work on behalf of the artist will be pursued in collaboration with Kayne Griffin Corcoran, Los Angeles.

Over the last five decades, Mary Corse’s practice has investigated perception, properties of light, and ideas of abstraction. A contemporary of artists long-represented by Pace, such as James Turrell and Robert Irwin, Corse shares with them a deep fascination with perception and the role of light as both a subject and material of art. However, she has singularly approached the question of light through painting—continually advancing the meditative power of the medium and its transcendent ability to shape our experience of the surrounding world, in a manner resonant with the work of fellow Pace artists, such as Agnes Martin and Robert Ryman.

Using materials as diverse as glass microspheres embedded in the surface of the canvas, electric light, and earth clay, Corse creates simple geometric configurations that give structure to the luminescent internal space of her paintings. Corse’s paintings embody rather than merely represent light, and explore subjective experience in innovative ways. Her works open themselves up to their environment, reflecting and refracting light, and invite a perceptual encounter that is grounded in vision and movement.

“On behalf of all of us at Pace, we feel incredibly honored to expand our relationship with Mary Corse,” said Marc Glimcher, Pace Gallery President and CEO. “The power and vivacity of her paintings are unmatched, and we’re thrilled to now have the opportunity to not only showcase her work in Asia, but to share it with our audience in our hometown of New York as well. Of course, New Yorkers have had the privilege to see Mary’s work at the Whitney and at Dia:Beacon, and we’re looking forward to building upon that foundation at Pace in New York.”

Mary Corse was born in Berkeley in 1945 and earned her MFA from Chouinard Art Institute (now California Institute of Arts) in 1968. Her work is currently the subject of a three-year-long installation at Dia:Beacon, Beacon, NY; as well as a comprehensive survey exhibition that will open at Los Angeles County Museum of Art in summer 2019, following a recent presentation at the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York. In fall 2019, new work by the artist will be presented in Los Angeles at Kayne Griffin Corcoran. Lisson Gallery will continue to represent Corse in London.

Corse’s works reside in the permanent collections of the Dia Art Foundation, New York; the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York; the Los Angeles County Museum of Art; Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York; the Menil Collection, Houston; the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles; the J. Paul Getty Museum; and the National Gallery of Art, Washington, D.C., among many others. She is the recipient of numerous grants and awards, including the Cartier Foundation Award (1993), National Endowment for the Arts Fellowship (1975), Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum’s Theodoran Award (1971), and Los Angeles County Museum of Art’s New Talent Award (1967). She lives and works in Topanga Canyon, California.
