NEW YORK, NY.- Pace
has much in store in New York this fall, from Jean Dubuffet and Irving Penn to Robert Ryman and Zhang Huan this September, and inaugural exhibitions with the gallery by Ilya and Emilia Kabakov and Raqib Shaw this November.
The Late Drawings 1975-1985 celebrates the gallerys 16th solo exhibition of Jean Dubuffet, commonly noted as one of the most influential painters of the twentieth century. The solo exhibition will feature 44 works on paper, mostly black and white but also exploring primary colors and ranging in figurative to abstract forms, revealing aspects of the well-known painters approach. The exhibition focuses on works made later in the artists career and will be on view Sept 10 Oct 26 at 32 East 57th Street. Pace has represented Jean Dubuffet since 1968 and the accompanying catalogue will include an essay by Arne Glimcher.
Continuing in the gallerys strong commitment to presenting Chinese artists in Asia as well as New York and London, Pace will present Zhang Huans Poppy Fields. Presented at Paces 534 West 25th Street, will be 23 never-before-seen paintings by the artist which have occupied much of Zhang Huans practice over the past three years. The works are largely inspired by Tibetan dance masks and represent a new departure in Zhangs work in terms of scale in comparison to the large-scale Ash paintings and sculptures such as the 15-ton Three Heads, Six Arms which consumed San Francisco in 2010. The exhibition will open Sept 19th with a public reception from 6-8 pm and will remain on view through Oct 26th.
A survey of photographs, magazines and ephemera from the six-decade career of the iconic American photographer Irving Penn (b. 1917 d. 2009) will open on September 13. The exhibition will feature images Penn took while working on assignment for advertising campaigns like Clinique and publications like The New Yorker, Vogue, Look, and House and Garden, for which Penn made some of the most compelling fashion images, portraits and still lifes of our time. The exhibition is presented in conjunction with Pace/MacGill Gallery.
Paces inaugural exhibition of Ilya and Emilia Kabakov will feature paintings from several recent series as well as a single installation. This exhibition is part of a constellation of events celebrating the upcoming 80th birthday of Ilya Kabakov. Concurrent with Pace's presentation is the eighth edition of the Kabakov's conceptual installation, The Ship of Tolerance, on September 28 during The Dumbo Arts Festival in Brooklyn and the premiere of the documentary Ilya and Emilia Kabakov: Enter Here at Film Forum this November.
Pace will also present the first exhibition of Indian-born, London-based artist Raqib Shaw. Known for his opulent paintings and sculptures, Shaw creates shimmering, jewel-like surfaces, which often use dark images drawn from ancient myths from both Eastern and Western tradition. Featuring new paintings and sculptures, the show will span all three of Paces galleries on 25th Street.
