The exhibition will feature two bodies of conceptual three-dimensional work: intimately-sized crystal pagodas inlaid with images from Sugimoto’s iconic Seascape series and large-scale aluminum sculptures based on mathematical functions.

The Pace Gallery was founded by Arne Glimcher in Boston in 1960. Three years later, the gallery relocated to New York, setting up its headquarters in Midtown Manhattan. By the early 1980s, Pace was fully established as one of the city’s premier modern and contemporary art venues for painting, sculpture, video, and installation art.
