Reblog of the day: The Ozymandias Parade is an opulent allegory of the abuse of political power, with a parade of figures and symbols representing elements of society.  Whether the parade’s president shows a YES or a NO across his face is the result of a poll conducted in the weeks leading up to the installation’s opening, comprised of just one simple question: “Are you satisfied with your government?”  To find out how our gallery visitors answered, come see this traveling exhibit for yourself at 510 West 25th Street.

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’s gallery at 32 East 57th Street is open. Lee Friedlander: Nudes is on view from 10 AM to 6 PM, Tuesday through Saturday.  

We will announce the reopening of Chuck Close next week.  Please continue to check www.pacegallery.com for updates.

Beginning November 2nd, on the eve of U.S. national elections, Pace will present Ed Kienholz and Nancy Reddin Kienholz’s monumental installation The Ozymandias Parade (1985), an opulent allegory of the abuse of political power. Whether the parade’s sinister president shows a YES or a NO across his face is the result of a poll conducted in the weeks leading up to the installation’s opening, comprised of just one simple question: “Are you satisfied with your government?”

Click here to vote YES or NO to decide the answer for the November presentation, and visit the exhibition to see the result.
