A look back at Pace Prints in the News in 2016
A look back at Pace Prints in the News in 2016

From Dan Walsh's "Elements" in The Paris Review Daily to Shahzia Sikander's op-ed "We need diverse influences" in The Los Angeles Times, it's been an exciting year in the news for Pace Prints collaborators.

Emilio Perez's newest screenprint, Dream Season was featured in numerous publications including The Creators Project and The Daily Beast, concurrent to the artist's installation for Times Square Arts' and Times Square Advertising Coalition's Midnight Moment series.

Artsy highlighted both Jenny Holzer and Shahzia Sikander's newest etchings in "What New Collectors Need to Know about Buying Prints" alongside advice for collecting prints from Pace Prints Communications Manager Christina Graham. Sikander published a powerful op-ed in The Los Angeles Times calling for more mercurial understanding of identity and a prioritization of the creative process as a means to empathy.

Prints by KAWS were featured in Allure Magazine's "10 Beautiful Things" (May, 2016) and on the cover of Milk Magazine Hong Kong (March 2016, Issue 766).

"Cutouts," 2016 at The Journal Gallery, New York
Daniel Heidkamp in Artspace's Top Picks from NADA Miami Beach 2016

Pace Prints collaborator Daniel Heidkamp was featured in Artspace's list The 27 Best Paintings of NADA Miami Beach 2016. The painting, titled Cutouts, was made in preparation for his forthcoming exhibition of collages and cutout-inspired prints at Pace Prints.

Andrew M. Goldstein writes, "To prepare for his upcoming 2017 show of collages at Pace Prints, the in-demand landscape painter Daniel Heidkamp left Brooklyn for the bucolic calm of an artists’ retreat in Bearsville, New York, where he assembled the materials for the work. This generously sized painting commemorates that period, with the components of his collages shown scattered around the room—the makings of one of his signature bouncy castles, a recurring motif, lies on the table—and with a rolling stretch of autumnal nature revealing itself beautifully through the window, flooding the scene with color."

Ryan McGinness' "50 Parties" Book published by Standard Press

Standard Press announced their latest book release, 50 Parties, a document of Ryan McGinness' infamous 50 parties project—a series of 50 themed parties for 50 successive weeks from 2009-2010.

With this project, McGinness, "endeavored to create genuine parties with no hidden agenda—parties for the sake of parties, with absolutely no sponsorship. He was interested in the idea of party as medium and vehicle for creating content. To that end, each party was based on a different concept or theme, aimed at creating real interactions between guests."

The Standard Spa, Miami Beach hosted a recreation of the parties during Art Basel Miami Beach 2016. 50 Parties is now available exclusively through The Standard shops and online store.

Nicola López at MOCA Jacksonville
Nicola López at MOCA Jacksonville
Saturday, November 19, 2016 - Sunday, February 26, 2017

MOCA Jacksonville will host a solo exhibition of work by Pace Prints collaborator Nicola López, A Gentle Defiance of Gravity and Form in its project atrium November 19, 2016-February 26, 2017. In installation, drawing, and printmaking, López describes and reconfigures our contemporary-primarily urban-landscape. Her focus on translating “place” into an art form stems from an interest in urban planning, architecture, and anthropology. López's practice is fueled by time spent working and traveling in different landscapes.

For the installation, López constructs and then deconstructs a skyscraper into recognizable yet fragmented parts that visualize its construction process and various states of its life cycle. Built of galvanized steel studs and veiled in Mylar prints, In Gentle Defiance of Gravity and Form is a site-specific sculptural environment caught between moments of erection and stability to decay and distortion. López's skeletal structure is monumental yet fragile as one navigates through the installation. As she observes and reconfigures our urban landscape, López pushes the boundaries of printmaking and installation art via innovative modes of creation.

Emilio Perez, "Dream Season," 2016, Screenprint, 54 ½ x 40 inches, Edition of 50
New Print Release by Emilio Perez to coincide with Times Square Installation
Tuesday, November 1, 2016

Pace Prints is pleased to announce the release of a new screenprint by Emilio Perez, available starting November 1, 2016. The print was created using imagery from the artist’s large-scale installation Dream Season for Times Square Arts and Times Square Advertising Coalition’s Midnight Moment series.

The print was inspired by the rhythm and energy of New York’s perpetually pulsating Times Square. In the artist’s words, the installation is “a visual road trip, where the viewer is immersed in a series of collaged drawings, painted gestures and layers of atmospheric color that recall distant galaxies, ebbing and flowing like crowds that pass through the city and the bodies of water which surround it.”

The screenprint, in an edition of 50, combines the spontaneity and expressiveness of painting with the kinetic energy of the Midnight Moment experience. The installation will play nightly on the electronic billboards of Times Square from November 1 through November 30, 2016 from 11:57pm to midnight.
