SAN ANTONIO, TX.-
The Board of Trustees of the Linda Pace Foundation
announce the opening of SPACE, a new exhibition space designed by San Antonio architect Jim Poteet, FAIA. While the Foundation has previously presented exhibitions in Linda Pace's private home on Camp Street, SPACE is free and open to the public Wednesday through Saturday from noon to 5pm, making the collection of late philanthropist and artist Linda Pace available for public view on an ongoing basis.
For the inaugural exhibition at SPACE, Maura Reilly curated Pace Gems. Kelly OConnor, the exhibitions & collection officer, organized the selection of works from the Foundations permanent collection. Pace Gems aims to accurately reflect Paces overarching collection criteria, which focused on artists linked with the Artpace residency program and its related Hudson Show Room exhibitions, as well as other internationally recognized artists.
In addition to local San Antonio and regional artists, such as Forrest Bess, Franco Mondini-Ruiz, John Pomara, Linda Pace, and Dario Robleto, other select artworks in Pace Gems include Catherine Opie, Donald Moffett, Lynda Benglis, Kendell Geers, Teresita Fernandez, Mona Hatoum, Jim Hodges, Yayoi Kusama, Daniel Joseph Martinez, Marilyn Minter, Glenn Ligon, Nancy Spero, and Wangechi Mutu. The Foundation's newest acquisition, a monumental sculpture by Andrea Bowers, Memorial to Arcadia Woodlands Clear-Cut (2013), has been included in the Pace Gems exhibition.
