Pace Gallery to Release a New Book and Exhibition on Mark RothkoOn view from October 8 to November 13.
In anticipation of the upcoming “Mark Rothko 1968: Clearing Away” exhibition at Pace Gallery in London, Pace Publishing will release a new book documenting this seldom-seen body of work. Designed by London studio, Kellenberger-White, the Rothko publication features an essay by Barbican Art Gallery curator, Eleanor Nairne and an introduction by Rothko’s son, Christopher.
“Mark Rothko 1968: Clearing Away” will view at Pace London from October 8 to November 13 and is dedicated solely to the artist’s paper-based work from the late 1960s. Due to illness, this was a particularly difficult moment in Rothko’s life — where he was forced to adapt his practice from the massive canvases he is known for to smaller paper studies largely made with acrylic paint.
In addition to the “Mark Rothko 1968: Clearing Away,” Pace Publishing will also release three other intriguing artist books on Agnes Martin, Adrian Ghenie, Thomas Nozkowski, along with a limited-edition dubplate that will be a part of Torkwase Dyson’s upcoming performances and multimedia installation, “Liquid a Place.” Each of the five titles will release this fall.
