#MuseumMonday: Opening this Wednesday, November 14th, we suggest visiting Tate Modern’s newest exhibit, A Bigger Splash: Painting after Performance. Featuring Pace artist, David Hockney, the exhibition considers two different approaches to the idea of the canvas as an arena in which to act: one gestural, the other one theatrical.

Adam Pendleton: I’ll Be Your closes this Saturday, October 27th at Pace London, 6-10 Lexington Street. Using appropriated images and text, Pendleton recontextualizes history to establish alternative interpretations of the present and a future dynamic where new historical narratives and meanings can exist. The exhibition title, an abbreviation of the Velvet Underground & Nico song “I’ll Be Your Mirror,” implies an incomplete and open-ended condition of being that is unfixed and flexible.

Reblog of the day: This #ThrowbackThursday pick shows Mark Rothko with one of his commissioned paintings for the Menil Chapel in Houston, TX. These late works, much like works currently on view in our exhibit, Rothko/Sugimoto: Dark Paintings and Seascapes, relate less to any personal tragedy in Rothko’s life, and more to eternal and depersonalized metaphysical questions.

Reblog of the day: Rothko/Sugimoto: Dark Paintings and Seascapes opens TODAY at Pace London. The exhibition marks the first private gallery presentation of Rothko’s work in London in nearly fifty years.
Rothko/Sugimoto: Paintings and Seascapes, the inaugural exhibition at Pace London’s flagship gallery at 6 Burlington Gardens, debuts this Thursday, October 4, 2012!
The show juxtaposes Mark Rothko’s late black and grey paintings with Hiroshi Sugimoto’s photographs of bodies of water, exploring the visual and conceptual affinities between the two.
The concept for the exhibition originated in 2010, when Hiroshi Sugimoto joined Pace and was introduced to Christopher Rothko, the son of Mark Rothko.
This exceptional film by Meredith Danluck goes inside the studio of Pace artist, Hiroshi Sugimoto, and highlights his philosophies on photography, nature and spirituality.
You can view his work in our inaugural exhibition Rothko/Sugimoto: Dark Paintings and Seascapes at 6 Burlington Gardens tomorrow, October 4th.
