The flooring at the new Pace Gallery in Menlo Park has a bit of a factory-filling, a fact that shouldn’t be surprising given that it’s the same space where Tesla’s were once assembled.
The Pace pop-up gallery first opened last month with an exhibition of the works of Alexander Calder. The second exhibition atthe temporary space is Tara Donovan: Untitled which features works from the artist’s last 15 years and runs from May 22 to June 30, 2014. [Note: top photo, is details of Donovan's "Untitled" (Mylar) 2011, the work is shown in full at bottom.]
Also on exhibit is a wide variety of work by contemporary masters in an adjacent gallery. A 1,000 volume art library is available for use by visitors to the gallery.
Pace CEO, Marc Glimcher, as well as Pace Presidents, Douglas Baxter, Susan Dunne, Mollie Dent-Brocklehurst (Pace London) and Leng Lin (Pace Beijing) will each spend time managing the gallery at various times during the 11-week run. The Gallery is open Monday through Saturday from 1:00 to 9:00 pm.
Glimcher said in an interview with Gallerist that he has been getting to know clients in the region over the past decade and said tech entrepreneurs are becoming increasingly interested in breaking into the art world. Glimcher said feedback from potential buyers indicates they need “not necessarily a gallery, but we need a moment.”
