The Board of Trustees of the Linda Pace Foundation announce the opening of SPACE, a new exhibition space designed by San Antonio architect Jim Poteet, FAIA. While the Foundation has previously presented exhibitions in Linda Pace’s private home on Camp Street, SPACE will be free and open to the public Wednesday through Saturday from noon to 5pm, making the collection of late philanthropist and artist Linda Pace available for public view on an ongoing basis. Opening weekend festivities will be held Friday, April 18 to 19.

For the inaugural exhibition at SPACE, Maura Reilly curated Pace Gems. Kelly O’Connor, the exhibitions & collection officer, organized the selection of works from the Foundation’s permanent collection. Pace Gems aims to accurately reflect Pace’s overarching collection criteria, which focused on artists linked with the Artpace residency program and its related Hudson Show Room exhibitions, as well as other internationally recognized artists.

In addition to local San Antonio and regional artists, such as Forrest Bess, Franco Mondini-Ruiz, John Pomara, Linda Pace, and Dario Robleto, other select artworks in Pace Gems include Catherine Opie, Donald Moffett, Lynda Benglis, Kendell Geers, Teresita Fernandez, Mona Hatoum, Jim Hodges, Yayoi Kusama, Daniel Joseph Martinez, Marilyn Minter, Glenn Ligon, Nancy Spero, and Wangechi Mutu. The Foundation’s newest acquisition, a monumental sculpture by Andrea Bowers, Memorial to Arcadia Woodlands Clear-Cut (2013), will be included in the Pace Gems exhibition.

Public opening: Friday, April 18, 7–9pm
Refreshments and music

Artist panel discussion: Saturday, April 19, 3–4pm
Artists: Andrea Bowers, Daniel Joseph Martinez, and Donald Moffett
