Pace to Represent Estate of Tony Smith

According to Nate Freeman of Artnews, Pace Gallery has announced that it will now represent the estate of twentieth-century sculptor Tony Smith. Matthew Marks Gallery managed it previously.

“I would like to say what a great job Matthew did all these years,” said Pace president Marc Glimcher at the Armory Show. “Sometimes it’s time for a change—and that’s happened to us, too,” he added. “It’s just part of the dynamic now.”

Pace founder Arne Glimcher said that the gallery represented Smith before he died and that the generation of Abstract Expressionists and early Minimalists that Smith was a part of “are the bedrock the gallery is built upon.” Smith’s work will be featured in the Art Unlimited section of the 2017 edition of Art Basel in Switzerland as well as in an exhibition at one of Pace’s galleries in November 2018.
