Pace Gallery’s Eight-Story Flagship Opens in Chelsea

No contributor

Pace Gallery opened its new eight-story Chelsea flagship to the public on Saturday, September 14. Celebrating the space, guests like Jonah Hill, Rashid Johnson, David Kordansky, and Wes Anderson enjoyed a commemorative night of music and art, featuring a special performance by The Who.

Kicking off the event, DJ Questlove performed a set on the sixth-floor terrace, before The Who took the stage, giving the crowd an acoustic set of iconic songs like Pinball Wizard and The Kids Are Alright. Between musical sets, guests previewed the gallery’s inaugural exhibitions featuring Alexander Calder, Yto Barrada, Loie Hollowell, David Hockney, Peter Hujar, and Fred Wilson—whose chandelier works set the stage for a final musical performance by Graham Reynolds’ band in the seventh-floor gallery.

Developed under the care of Weinberg Properties, the Bonetti/Kozerski Architecture-designed building measures in at a behemoth 75,000 square feet and was created as an integrated and dynamic space comprised of four separate galleries. Visitors will find indoor and outdoor exhibition spaces, a 10,000-volume research library, an open-art storage area, and 2,200 square feet devoted to performances and interdisciplinary collaborations. The flagship also features an environmentally conscious design with elements like volcanic stone exteriors and special lighting by Arnold Chan of Isometrix Lighting Design.

It is Pace’s second location in New York, and joins its other locations (in London, Geneva, Palo Alto, Hong Kong, and Seoul) just in time for the gallery’s 60th anniversary in 2020
