Pace Gallery Marks 10th Anniversary in Asia with March 2018 Opening of New Gallery in Hong Kong
Pace Gallery is pleased to announce the opening of a new gallery in Hong Kong, its second in the city and its fourth space in Asia. Designed by Bonetti/Kozerski Architecture – the same firm designing Pace’s new flagship gallery opening in fall 2019 in Chelsea, New York – the gallery will open during Art Basel Hong Kong on March 26, 2018 in the H Queen’s building in the city’s Central District. Pace will inaugurate the gallery with an exhibition dedicated to Japanese artist Yoshitomo Nara, coupled with an exhibition of works on paper and paintings by New York- based artist Loie Hollowell in its original Hong Kong gallery.
Pace has long been deeply engaged with the region’s dynamic community of artists, collectors and institutions. 2018 marks the tenth anniversary of Pace’s presence in Asia, which began with the opening of its 2,500 square-meter gallery in Beijing in 2008. Over the course of the last decade and under the strategic vision of Marc Glimcher, Pace Gallery President & CEO, and Leng Lin, Partner and President of Pace Hong Kong, Beijing, Seoul, Pace has expanded its Asian presence—opening its first gallery in Hong Kong in 2014, followed by the opening of its gallery in Seoul in 2017. The opening of its second gallery in Hong Kong will further strengthen Pace’s engagement with artists, collectors and institutions across the region and provide an important platform to showcase the gallery’s renowned program of the leading international artists of the 20th and 21st–centuries.
