Pace Art + Technology program launches with teamlab and Random International

Pace Art + Technology, founded by Pace President Marc Glimcher have launched a new program dedicated to collaboration with interdisciplinary art groups, collectives and studios whose works explore the confluence of art and technology. The program is an expansion of Pace’s longstanding commitment to artistic approaches that emphasize digital and technological methods.

Marc Glimcher says

“Since the late 60s, Pace has always taken an interest in art and technology.  From our early work with James Turrell and Robert Whitman through our recent projects with teamLab, we are always looking for ways to support experimentation by artists.  After establishing a base in Menlo Park it became clear that this would be an ideal venue in which to examine the new approach of the emerging art and technology collectives and how to best share their work with the public.”

Pace Art & Technology will launch in early 2016 with exhibitions by teamLab and Random International, both of whom have recently joined Pace. In February, site-responsive works by Japan-based group teamLab will be presented as part of the new program at Pace Menlo Park, a pop-up space that opened in 2014. Next fall, art collective Random International will create an immersive environment for the gallery. Additional Pace Art & Technology programming will be announced in 2016.

The exhibition teamLab at Radcliffe: What a Loving and Beautiful World is currently on view at Harvard University. Random International’s Rain Room (2012) is currently on view at Los Angeles County Museum of Art and Yuz Museum, Shanghai.
