Pace Gallery is pleased to announce the establishment of Gallery 125 Newbury, a new project space in New York helmed by Pace’s Founder and Chairman Arne Glimcher. Located at the corner of Broadway and Walker Street in New York’s Tribeca neighborhood, the enterprise is named for the address of Pace’s first-ever gallery space, which opened in Boston in 1960. Gallery 125 Newbury will operate in association with Pace, which is led by President and CEO Marc Glimcher. The new gallery is set to open in fall 2022.
Guided by Arne Glimcher’s six decades of pioneering exhibition-making, the enterprise, situated in a space formerly occupied by the Pearl River Market, will present up to five exhibitions per year with a focus on thematic group shows and emerging artists, including artists both within and beyond Pace’s program; Gallery 125 Newbury will eschew the traditional gallery model in favor of a more nimble and flexible structure focused on developing cutting-edge exhibitions with a global perspective.
Gallery 125 Newbury will serve as an expanded platform for Arne Glimcher’s curatorial vision, which he will develop in tandem with his ongoing work at Pace. Maintaining his current role with Pace and his office space at the gallery’s 540 West 25th Street location, Arne Glimcher will continue to organize selected exhibitions at Pace’s global locations, including forthcoming solo exhibitions of Robert Irwin, Richard Tuttle, and Sam Gilliam, and he and his team will also continue working closely with Pace’s other artists. The inauguration of Gallery 125 Newbury represents Arne Glimcher’s return to his roots in hands-on curatorial experimentation, where his interest has always been directed.
Gallery 125 Newbury will be housed in a 3,900 square-foot space with 17-foot ceilings. Prior to the enterprise’s opening, the interior space will be fully renovated by architects Enrico Bonetti and Dominic Kozerski, of the firm Bonetti/Kozerski, which designed Pace’s eight-story gallery in New York’s Chelsea neighborhood. Keeping with the character of Tribeca, the space will retain some elements of the structure, including its original ceilings.
The Gallery 125 Newbury team will include Kathleen McDonnell, Talia Rosen, and Oliver Shultz, who will continue to serve as members of Arne Glimcher’s existing team at Pace as well as directors of the new space.
