Though Chelsea was severely impacted by the recent storm, Pace is fortunate to report that our galleries escaped major damage.
The opening of Kienholz: The Ozymandias Parade / Concept Tableaux has been rescheduled for Wednesday, November 7th, to coincide with the opening of Michal Rovner: Topography at 510 West 25th Street. Please join us from 6 to 8 PM to celebrate these two exhibitions.

Pace is honored to present an exhibition of recent paintings, prints, and tapestries by Chuck Close. Highlights of the exhibition, Close’s first gallery show in New York since his 2009 exhibition at Pace, include never-before-seen paintings of Phil [Glass], 2011-2012. Phil, which stretches over 9 feet tall and 7 feet wide, is the artist’s most recent iteration of his close friend, who he has captured in numerous media since 1969, when the now famed composer was working as a studio assistant to Close’s classmate from Yale, Richard Serra.

Reblog of the day: We suggest finding joy by visiting Chuck Close’s current exhibit at Pace, now on view at 534 West 25th Street.
I interviewed artist Chuck Close, who told me how to find joy in life, for The One-Page Magazine in this week’s New York Times Magazine:
When I was in the hospital — I spent eight months in rehab, and I almost died — I decided that I was going to make sure I had some fun every single day. It might be a play or a movie, or it might be going by a gallery and seeing a show. Often, it’s eating.
