Pace Gallery to Open Chelsea Flagship Building in 2019

Pace Gallery announced today that it will open its new flagship gallery in the Chelsea neighborhood of Manhattan in September 2019. Located at 540 West Twenty-Fifth Street, Pace’s new headquarters is being developed by Weinberg Properties and designed by Bonetti / Kozerski Architecture. Spanning eight stories and measuring approximately 75,000 square feet, the building will feature expansive indoor and outdoor galleries; a 10,000-volume research library; an open art-storage area; and a 2,200-square-foot space dedicated to new media works, performance, and public programming.

“Designing this new building alongside Bonetti / Kozerski and Weinberg Properties has given our team at Pace the opportunity to approach, with fresh eyes, the question of what it means to be an art gallery in the twenty-first century,” Pace president and CEO Marc Glimcher said in a statement. “It allowed us to take a nuanced look at the fundamentals of what we do, where we believe the art world is heading, and how we can create a space that will empower us to continue to serve our artists and our community to the fullest extent of our abilities and ambitions.”

The gallery said that it will announce its inaugural season of programming in the coming months. When the space opens, Pace will cease operations at its 537 West Twenty-Fourth Street location but will continue to run its 510 West Twenty-Fifth Street and 32 East Fifty-Seventh Street galleries. Founded by Arne Glimcher in 1960, Pace currently has ten spaces worldwide, including in London, Geneva, Hong Kong, and Seoul.
