For the 2018 edition of Art Basel Miami Beach, Pace Gallery will present Lightness of Being—an exhibition dedicated to West Coast artists of the Light and Space and Finish Fetish movements.
The presentation will showcase works by artists long represented by Pace, such as Robert Irwin and James Turrell, as well as new additions to the gallery, including Mary Corse. To capture the fluid spectrum of creative perspectives and approaches inspired by the movements over for the last 50 years, Pace’s exhibition will also feature works by seminal artists Peter Alexander, Larry Bell, Craig Kauffman, John McCracken, and Doug Wheeler. The works on view highlight the artists’ unrelenting investigations of space, light, perception, material, and subjective experience.
Additionally, as part of Pace’s new partnership with the renowned artist Christo, the gallery is honoured to present a series of five works on paper by Christo at Art Basel Miami Beach 2018, all related to Christo and Jeanne-Claude’s celebrated project Surrounded Islands, Biscayne Bay, Greater Miami, Florida, 1980-83. The presentation coincides with the 35th anniversary of Surrounded Islands, as well as Pérez Art Museum Miami’s ambitious documentary exhibition dedicated to the project on view through February 17, 2019.
