The Pace Gallery is a New York City-based exhibition space. It was founded in 1960 in Boston by Arne Glimcher.

Pace Gallery spaces[edit]

The Pace Gallery operates four locations in New York City: one in Midtown (32 East 57th Street, 2nd floor), and three in Chelsea (534 West 25th Street, 510 West 25th Street, and 508 West 25th Street). The gallery at 510 West 25th Street opened in the fall of 2010 with the premier of the 50 Years at Pace anniversary exhibition. The space at 508 West 25th Street was acquired in Fall of 2011.

From 1995 to 1999, the Pace Gallery operated a space in Los Angeles.[1] The gallery announced the opening of a new space in London's Mayfair district in the Fall of 2010. The London location is the sixth exhibition space and second international venue for The Pace Gallery. Pace London opened its first exhibition of Sol LeWitt's wall drawings in Fall 2011.[2] The Gallery also has a location in the 798 Art District in Beijing, called Pace Beijing, a 22,000-square-foot (2,000 m2) space.[3] Pace Beijing has an independent program, though artists such as Zhang Xiaogang and Zhang Huan have exhibited in both the Beijing and New York galleries.[4] In April 2014, Pace Gallery opened a temporary branch in Menlo Park, California, located in the former Tesla Motors headquarters.[1] Later that year, yet another temporary space was opened in the historic Chesa Büsin in Zuoz, Switzerland.[5]

Other galleries operating under Pace include Pace/MacGill Gallery,[6] a photography gallery; Pace Prints[7] and Pace Master Prints,[8] which specialise in limited edition prints from the 15th to 21st centuries; and Pace Primitive,[9] devoted to African, Himalayan, Oceanic and Native American tribal art.


From 1993 until April 1, 2010, the gallery became "PaceWildenstein," a joint business venture between the Pace Gallery (the modern and contemporary art gallery) and Wildenstein & Co. (a gallery specializing in old master painting). On April 1, 2010, the two companies decided to dissolve the joint venture after 17 years, and The Pace Gallery again operates independently.[10]
