Pace is pleased to present Fred Wilson: Sculptures, Paintings, and Installations: 2004-2014 on view from September 12 to October 18, 2014, at 534 West 25th Street. Since the beginning of his career, Wilson has created a diverse range of work that challenges assumptions of history, culture and race. Pace’s exhibition will feature works from the past ten years, including several that have never before been exhibited.

This catalogue featuring an essay by Doro Globus, editor of Fred Wilson: A Critical Reader (Ridinghouse, London, 2011) accompanies the exhibition. As Doro Globus writes in the exhibition catalogue, “Wilson’s appropriation is wide reaching. Simultaneously working with decorative art and national symbols, he breaks down the supposed structures in place and offers up an alternative view of nearly everything he touches. He treats even the seemingly simplest of forms, a mirror or a flag, in the same manner as an entire museum collection; clearly showing the relevance and import of his work outside such institutions.”

Fred Wilson (born 1954, the Bronx) has created work that encourages viewers to reconsider social and historical narratives and raises critical questions about the politics of erasure and exclusion.
