Exhibition at Pace Gallery features new works by Sam Gilliam

Pace is presenting an exhibition of Sam Gilliam’s paintings in Hong Kong. Following its launch at Pace’s newly expanded space in Seoul, this presentation continues to mark the artist’s debut in Asia. The Hong Kong exhibition, which opened at Pace’s space in the H Queen’s building on July 22, features new works by Gilliam. Gilliam, who is now in his eighties, is widely considered one of the great innovators in postwar American painting. He emerged from the Washington, D.C. scene in the mid-1960s with works that elaborated upon and disrupted the ethos of Color Field painting and expanded the frontiers of Abstract Expressionism. A noted activist and aficionado of American jazz music, Gilliam extended the possibilities of picture making in a society undergoing dramatic change. All of the paintings in the exhibition were created by the artist
