Leonardo Drew at the de Young Museum
Saturday, March 25, 2017 - Sunday, October 29, 2017

The de Young Museum in San Francisco will host a solo exhibition of work by artist and Pace Prints collaborator Leonardo Drew. His expansive installation Number 197 spans three walls in the museum’s atrium, comprising a multitude of sculptural elements created and arranged in response to the unique context of the de Young’s landmark architecture.

Leonardo Drew has employed the grid, while also working to subvert it as a principle, to organize his assemblages and installations since the early 1990s. Using off-the-shelf-materials and the occasional found object, Drew produces pieces whose metaphorical power is located within his labor-intensive manipulation of materials and the spatial dynamics of his compositions.

There will be an artist talk titled "On and Beyond Number 197" on May 18, 2017, 7–8pm.

Beloved painter Howard Hodgkin dies at 84
Thursday, March 9, 2017

From The New York Times:
Howard Hodgkin, a British artist whose lush, semiabstract paintings, aquiver with implicit drama, established him as one of the most admired artists of the postwar period, died on Thursday in London. He was 84.
The Tate Galleries announced his death but did not specify a cause.
Mr. Hodgkin was a relative latecomer to fame. A slow, methodical worker who could spend years building up a painting’s surface, he did not have a solo show until he was 30, and for years thereafter toiled against the grain, his work at odds with prevailing fashion.
[...]
Mr. Hodgkin won the Turner Prize a year later, and as major gallery and museum exhibitions in Britain and the United States followed, one after the other, his distinctive blend of bravura brushwork, emotional depth and sense of mystery began to hold sway. He came to be seen as a highly original interpreter of the dramas that unfold in intimate, interior space, an heir to Bonnard and Vuillard.
“On the subject of sitting rooms, dining rooms, bedrooms and balconies neither Hodgkin’s eye nor his hand has ever failed him,” the critic John Russell wrote in The New York Times Magazine in 1990. “He is all-seeing on the subject of hotels, restaurants, private collections, public parks, costume jewelry, human exchanges of all kinds and day-to-day weather reporting. Manners and mores, ups and downs, ins and outs — all have their place in his paintings.
“He can make a wet afternoon in summer feel like the most blissful thing that ever happened,” he continued, “and when he summons up the quintessence of a restaurant (in London, by the way, not in Paris) he makes us want to stand up and shout for the menu.”

Dick Solomon: King of Prints in Introspective Magazine
Dick Solomon: King of Prints in Introspective Magazine

Julie L. Belcove interviewed Pace Prints president Dick Solomon for her feature in Introspective Magazine, an editorial venture from 1stDibs. In "Richard Solomon is the King of Prints," Solomon discusses how he got his start in the print business and his advice on collecting art saying, “The most important thing in buying a work of art is that you’re going to like it in four or five years, so it doesn’t give you all that it’s got in your first look.”

Solomon recalls the 1960 stroll in Boston where he discovered the new contemporary art space Pace Gallery and met Arne Glimcher for the first time. “I bought the first thing he ever sold as an art dealer,” says Solomon. Eight years later, the two partnered on the publishing offshoot, which has collaborated with over 150 artists to date.

The interview chronicles Solomon's time at Harvard, Stop & Shop (his mother’s family’s business), Clairol and finally Pace Editions. Solomon credits the Pace Prints staff with some of the milestone business decisions he has made, from becoming a fully operational printshop with the the addition of master printer Joe Wilfer in the mid-1970s to the opening of a Chelsea gallery with a push from then-director Jacob Lewis.

While he is "loath to rank" the prints Pace Prints has produced, he does discuss his sentimental favorite from his personal collection: a fingerprint portrait by Chuck Close depicting a 40-year-old Solomon. At the time, "Solomon’s mother urged him to buy it. 'I said, 'You know, Mom, I really don’t like it. It makes me look much too old.'" but after some time his feelings have changed. “Forty years later,” Solomon notes of the portrait, “I look amazingly good.”
