Pace Presents Elizabeth Murray: Painting in the 80s

New York—Pace Gallery is pleased to present its ninth exhibition since 1996 devoted to the work Elizabeth Murray. The exhibition draws together sixteen paintings created by the artist in the 1980s, including loans from the Colby College Museum of Art, The Museum of Modern Art, the Philadelphia Museum of Art, and the Whitney Museum of American Art. Continuing where Pace Gallery's 2011 exhibition Elizabeth Murray: Painting in the '70s left off, Elizabeth Murray: Painting in the '80s explores another critical decade in the artist's career, the decade during which Murray began painting her iconic shaped canvases. The exhibition will be on view from November 2, 2017 to January 13, 2018 at 510 West 25th Street, with a public opening held on Thursday, November 2, from 6 – 8 p.m.
