The Linda Pace Foundation is the owner and steward of its founder’s contemporary art collection. The collection is a vibrant repository of more than 800 works of art, not only paintings but also sculpture, installations and videos, including many pieces acquired in the year in which they were created. The Linda Pace Foundation collection continues to grow each year, and is guided by the Founder’s commitment to collect the work of artists whose work is timely and of the highest quality. As Pace did, the Foundation continues to support the work of international contemporary artists, including those who have had residencies at Artpace, the separate non-profit organization. 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. Recent acquisitions include works by Shahzia Sikander, Wangechi Mutu, Arturo Herrera, Dario Robleto and Chuck Ramirez.

Work from the collection is installed at The Linda Pace Foundation’s Studio. For more information, click here.

Since 2007, the Foundation has loaned over 200 works from its collection, including loans to the Contemporary Arts Museum Houston, Bass Museum of Art in Miami Beach, the Tate Museum in London, MASS MoCA in North Adams, Mass., the Brooklyn Museum in New York, the Louisiana Museum of Modern Art in Denmark and the Museo de Arte Contemporáneo de Monterrey - MARCO in Mexico.
