American Pace Gallery comes to London

pacLondon will soon embrace yet another highly acclaimed art gallery. The famous American Pace Gallery appointed Mollie Dent-Brocklehurst to represent the gallery in finding and establishing their first art space in London.

Founded in Boston in 1960, Pace Gallery has gone on to establish an eminent status as one of the most renowned art galleries worldwide. It represents artists such as Zhang Xiaogang and the Tuner prizewinner, Keith Tyson.

According to Andrea Glimcher, The Gallery is delighted to announce their first presence in London, and that someone with Dent-Brocklehurst caliber will lead their London operations. Dent-Brook is expected to begin establishing the Pace’s London office by the end of the month.

Dent-Brocklehurst is one of the household names in the world of art. She is the International director and programme coordinator of Moscow based gallery The Garage. Opened in 2008, The Garage is owned by the Russian billionaire and Chelsea football club owner and his partner Dasha Zhukova. Dente-Brocklehurst will still hold an advisory role in The Garage, despite her focus shifting to the Pace Gallery office.

Pace and The Garage are co-organizing an exhibition of Rothkos paintings in spring, according to Glimsher. However, Glimsher was quick to pour water over rumors that the Russian billionaire is linked to Pace’s London operation.

Keith Tyson, the Turner prizewinning artist, expressed his delight that such plan is taking place. Tyson is one of the artists represented by the London Pace Gallery. ‘To be part of such a plan is something that fills me with both excitement and pride,’ Said Tyson. ‘London is the perfect hub between Europe and the United States. It is also rich with profound and avid art collectors.’

The Pace Gallery opening follows the opening of Hauser & Wirth’s opening of their new London, the second in the Capital. Moreover, news have emerged that Gagosian Art Gallery are going to open their third art gallery in London.
