The Pace Gallery is an American contemporary and modern art gallery with 10 locations worldwide. It was founded in Boston by Arne Glimcher in 1960. Arne's son, Marc Glimcher, is the current President and CEO of Pace Gallery.
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. In January 2009, PaceWildenstein announced plans for an independent publishing company called Artifex press, dedicated to the creation of online artists' catalogues raisonnés.
The gallery operates three spaces in New York City, and others in California, in China, in London and in Paris.
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. Artists such as Zhang Xiaogang and Zhang Huan have exhibited in both the Beijing and New York galleries.From 1995 to 1999, PaceWildenstein had a gallery in Los Angeles. 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. Pace opened a permanent gallery in downtown Palo Alto in 2016.
Pace is a partner in the Pace/MacGill Gallery, which specializes in photographs and is run by Peter MacGill.
