Linda Pace Foundation is committed to the charitable vision of its founder. Guided by the donor’s conviction that contemporary art is essential to a dynamic society, Linda Pace Foundation fosters the creation, presentation and understanding of innovative expression through contemporary art.
Linda Pace Foundation publicly exhibits its collection through loans to museums and SPACE, its public exhibition gallery. Free and open to the public Wednesday through Saturday, 12 noon – 5pm, SPACE showcases the collection of late philanthropist and artist Linda Pace, as well as related contemporary art exhibitions on an ongoing basis. Visitors enter through CHRISpark to access SPACE, experiencing the meandering beauty of another of Linda Pace's creations.
Since 2007, the Foundation has loaned hundreds of works to institutions such as; Pulitzer Arts Center, Gwangju Biennale, Tate in London, MASS MoCA in North Adams, Mass., Brooklyn Museum in New York, Louisiana Museum of Modern Art in Denmark, and Museo de Arte Contemporáneo de Monterrey - MARCO in Mexico and others.
The Foundation fulfills Linda Pace's vision of supporting the work of international contemporary artists. Acquisitions typically echo the themes and character of Pace's own collecting, which favored works that reflected a feminist perspective, engaged social issues and considered aspects of spirituality and beauty.
Since Linda Pace's death in 2007, the Foundation has steadfastly worked towards realizing her vision, in fact her mandate – to create a contemporary art center for the community, artists and the world to experience contemporary art. Sir David Adjaye has designed a building, which will open to the public in 2019 in San Antonio, Texas. The building will exhibit the Foundation's growing collection and serve as a destination for visitors to contemplate and experience adventurous artwork from the recent past.
