About this title


"Adventures in Art" is a magisterial volume that documents the exhibitions at Pace Gallery in New York. One of the handful of most important American galleries over the past 40 years, the history of Pace is virtually the history of art in America since World War II, and this book, with over 700 color images in its nearly 700 pages, shows why. From the classic Mondrian show "The Salon of Mme. B," which reconstructed his unrealized architectural project, to the "Je suis le cahier" show of Picasso's unpublished sketchbooks, Pace has always shown artists and works in ways that help redefine their importance and suggest new ways of seeing. Arne Glimcher, founder of Pace Gallery, has not only been adept at spotting trends in art, but in encouraging new visions, and defining movements as well. Among the artists with whom he has had a close and enduring relationship are Robert Irwin, Loiuse Nevelson, Chuck Close, Donald Judd, Jean Dubuffet, and many others whose exhibitions are documented in "Adventures in Art". Along with the visual documentation, the book includes an introduction by art scholar Barbara Rose, an essay by Arne Glimcher himself, and chronological lists of the exhibitions and publications that have defined Pace Gallery since the early 1960s.

"I'm interested in giving a new perspective to the span of an artist's work by extending the public's perception of an entire oeuvre. . .I show art that astonishes me." Arne Glimcher

Artists include: Larry Bell, Louise Nevelson, Robert Irwin, Jean Dubuffet, Piet Mondrian, Agnes Martin, Jim Dine, Lee Krasner, Chuck Close, Brice Marden, Mark Rothko, Joseph Cornell, Barnett Newman, Dan Flavin, Robert Ryman, Claes Oldenburg and many others.

From Library Journal:

A firsthand survey history of the influential Pace Gallery in New York City, this in fact presents a pretty good snapshot of the city's art world in the past 40-plus years. A brief introduction by critic Barbara Rose sets the scene and surveys the development of the gallery in its various incarnations (Pace Gallery, PaceWildenstein, Pace Editions, Pace/MacGill) and the artists it handled. The bulk of the book is a chronological survey of the exhibitions founder Arne Glimcher organized. Each exhibition receives several pages reproducing installation views, with photos of individual objects, excerpts from reviews and catalogs, and brief observations by Glimcher written expressly for this book. The list of artists Pace handled is impressive (e.g., Louise Nevelson, Chuck Close, and Mark Rothko), as is the range and the prescience shown. Though Pace was only one gallery in the New York art world, the in-house history (edited by Glimcher's wife, an art historian) makes its importance quite clear. Highly recommended for advanced art history collections. Jack Perry Brown, Art Inst. of Chicago Libs.
