Pace Gallery Extends Robert Irwin Show

irwin Pace Gallery Extends Robert Irwin Show

No install shots: go see the show.

Let’s say you’re a New Yorker in Europe right now. You’ve hit Manifesta and Documenta, plus made the requisite trips to Zurich and Basel. You’re thinking about hanging around for another week or so to relax after all that art viewing. But wait, you realize in horror: you’re going to miss seeing Robert Irwin’s show at Pace’s East 57th Street location, which ends its run on June 23!

No, you’re not.

Pace just released word that the the exhibition has been extended through July 13. (The extension applies to everyone, including those who simply have not yet seen the show because of general procrastination or being very busy.)

It’s always sad—and embarrassing—to miss a major exhibition, but this one would be especially tragic to miss because it is the first part in a double-header called “Dotting the i’s & Crossing the t’s.” The second part arrives in the fall at Pace.

If you need further inducement, know this: it’s a good-looking exhibition. Just a few handsome works—classic Irwin—elegantly arranged. Plus, he’s made some subtle alterations to the space that are well worth the trip.

Update, June 20: An earlier version of this post incorrectly stated the extension of the show. It is hopen through July 13.
