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.

Email info@paceprints.com for pricing and availibility.

Emilio Perez was born in 1972 in New York City. He attended Pratt Institute and University of Florida's New World School of the Arts. Perez's works can be found in the permanent collections of the PAMM - Perez Art Museum, Miami; Albright-Knox Art Gallery, Buffalo; Fundación ARCO, Madrid and Arkansas Art Center, Little Rock; and in corporate collections, internationally. The artist's paintings were featured in the Critical Gestures, PAMM, Miami; 12th Havana Biennial; Topographies at the Albright-Knox Art Gallery, Buffalo; and Signs of the Apocalypse/Rapture at the Hyde Park Art Center, Chicago. Perez had solo exhibitions with Galerie Lelong in both New York and Paris and has been featured in group exhibitions in Dusseldorf, Philadelphia, Houston and St. Louis, among others.

Major KAWS Survey at the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth
Major KAWS Survey at the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth
Thursday, October 20, 2016 - Sunday, January 22, 2017

KAWS: WHERE THE END STARTS is a major survey exhibition of the work of Brooklyn-based artist KAWS (American, born 1974) organized by Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth curator Andrea Karnes in close collaboration with the artist. Featuring key paintings, sculptures, drawings, toys, and street art interventions, this exhibition examines KAWS’s prolific career in depth, revealing critical aspects of his formal, conceptual, and collaborative developments over the last twenty years.

Spanning the worlds of graffiti, pop art, and consumer culture, KAWS’s bodies of work are highly charged, each conveying his underlying wit, irreverence, and affection for our times, as well as his agility as an artist. He has primarily looked to and appropriated from pop-culture animations (including The Smurfs, The Simpsons, SpongeBob, Hanna-Barbera, and Peanuts) to form his artistic vocabulary for his paintings, drawings, and sculptures. Now well known for his larger-than-life sculptures and hard-edge paintings that emphasize line and color, KAWS’s cast of hybrid cartoon/human characters, with similarities to popular cartoon figures and logos like Mickey Mouse and the Michelin Man, are perhaps the strongest examples of his exploration of humanity. These figures have amicable names—Chum, Companion, Accomplice—and express and provoke an array of human emotions, from sad, overwhelmed, pathetic, and weary, to shy. They reflect feelings and situations we can empathize with in presentations that are balanced with humor, heartening in their cartoon aesthetic.

On view in Fort Worth, Texas, October 20, 2016 through January 22, 2017, and traveling to the Yuz Museum in Shanghai, China, March through August 2017.

James Turrell, “Meeting” (1980-86)
James Turrell's Skyspace "Meeting" Reopens at MoMA PS1

James Turrell’s celebrated Skyspace Meeting is reopening at MoMA PS1 on Saturday, October 8 after a three-year renovation. Meeting is a site-specific installation that invites viewers to gaze upwards toward an unobstructed view of the sky. The renovation incorporates a new program of LED lights created by the artist, which change to contrast with the darkening sky.

According to The New York Times, "Mr. Turrell said that 'Meeting' was a turning point in both his career and the history of PS1. Klaus Biesenbach, the museum’s director, said that the piece begot a wave of skyspaces, has become “more and more revered” over time and continues to influence artists.

'It is still a very radical statement,' Mr. Biesenbach said. 'It shocks you.'"

A key representative of the “Light and Space” movement centered in Los Angeles during the 1960s, James Turrell creates works of art that consist primarily of light, exploring fundamental questions about the nature of human perception by rendering tangible the act of vision.
