LOS ANGELES, CA.- Marc Glimcher, CEO of Pace Gallery, announced today that the gallery will begin representing Alicja Kwade. In May 2024, Pace will present a curated exhibition at its Los Angeles gallery bringing together historical positions and works by Kwade.

Kwade’s internationally celebrated practice that spans sculpture, expansive public installation, film, photography and works on paper challenges scientific and philosophical concepts by dismantling the boundaries of perception. Her distinctive artistic language involves reflection, repetition, and the deconstruction and reconstruction of everyday objects and natural materials in an effort to explore the essence of our reality and to examine social structures. Often veering towards the absurd and transforming commonly accepted assumptions into open-ended questions, her poetic and mesmerizing oeuvre disrupts familiar systems and searches for new explanations to comprehend our world.

Kwade has exhibited widely at institutions including Louisiana Museum, Humlebæk; Whitechapel Gallery, London; MIT List Visual Arts Center, Cambridge, MA; Hamburger Bahnhof – Nationalgalerie der Gegenwart, Berlin; Espoo Museum of Modern Art, Espoo; and Haus Konstruktiv, Zurich. Over the past years, she has increasingly worked in the public realm, creating vast installations that respond to the architecture and the natural phenomena of various sites. In 2019, Kwade was commissioned to create a monumental installation for the Metropolitan Museum in New York. Two sculptures made of steel and enormous spherical rocks to evoke a solar system settled temporarily above Manhattan’s skyline. For her 2022 installation Au Cours Des Mondes on Place Vendôme in Paris the artist set a dialogue between natural stone globes affixed to endless concrete stairs and a set of natural stone spheres. Both works explore our place in the world, underlying mechanisms of power and our relationship to knowledge thereof.

Other notable installations include a 2022 participation at Desert X AlUla and an acclaimed presentation at the 57th Venice Biennale Viva Arte Viva in 2017.

Currently, the artist presents a comprehensive solo exhibition at the Lehmbruck Museum in Germany, and next year she will mount solo shows at Museum Voorlinden in the Netherlands and Tai Kwun in Hong Kong.

Alicja Kwade says: “I am incredibly excited to join Marc Glimcher and his exceptional team. Pace has made significant contributions to the development of modern and contemporary art. I am honored to become a part of the gallery's rich legacy that spans generations. I believe this new chapter will facilitate the growth of my artistic practice, opening up immense possibilities, enabling me to pursue even the most ambitious visions.”

Marc Glimcher, CEO of Pace Gallery, says: “Alicja is an artist who reveals the unknowable. In her practice, Alicja transforms our sense of perception and draws attention to nature’s relationship to human existence. There is deep affinity with our program in the philosophical and spiritual nature of Kwade’s work, and I’m honored to welcome her to our program. We look forward to sharing Alicja’s work with our global audiences through public projects and exhibitions.”

We look forward to supporting Kwade in the development of future exhibitions, realizing ambitious public and institutional projects, and collaborating on programming with her existing galleries, Mennour, 303 Gallery, and i8 Gallery.
