The Pace Gallery is an American contemporary and modern art gallery. It was founded in Boston by Arne Glimcher in 1960.[1]

The gallery moved to Manhattan in 1963 and from 1993 to 2010 operated jointly with Wildenstein & Co., a gallery specializing in old master painting, as PaceWildenstein.[2] In January 2009, PaceWildenstein announced plans for an independent publishing company called Artifex press, dedicated to the creation of online artists' catalogues raisonnés.[citation needed]

Gallery spaces[edit]

The gallery operates three spaces in New York City, and others in California, in China, in London and in Paris.[3]

PaceWildenstein opened its gallery in the Factory 798 District of Beijing, China, in 2008; it was the first major Manhattan art gallery to open in the city.[4] Artists such as Zhang Xiaogang and Zhang Huan have exhibited in both the Beijing and New York galleries.[5] From 1995 to 1999, PaceWildenstein had a gallery in Los Angeles.[6] In April 2014, Pace used the former Tesla Motors building in Menlo Park, California as a temporary exhibition space; later in the year, Pace London did the same in Chesa Büsin, a house in Zuoz, Switzerland.[6][7]

Pace is a partner in the Pace/MacGill Gallery, which specializes in photographs and is run by Peter MacGill.[8]
