An Index for Artists -

The gallery's No Photo policy is rigidly enforced. If you're a blogger who wishes to cover the show, a professor who wishes to have images to show your students, or simply an artist who wishes to have some images ro refer to, you're out of luck.Buy the catalog you, say? Well even if you have the money, it's usually sold out.
I personally have videoed several of the best “Kalm Reports” at Pace Wildenstein during their openings. On other occasions I was informed that there was a no photo policy but continued on the low-down (not making myself obvious) with no problems. P/W is one of the top five galleries in New York, anyone fortunate enough to work with them should thank their lucky stars. Their openings are convivial and well lubricated. If I ask, and show my press card, I'm always given a copy of the catalogs gratis, and have a nice stack of autographed copies in my library
The no photo policy sucks bigtime, no argument there.Meanwhile, last week Josh Baer reported that Pace has laid off 18 of 146 staffers.
Pace is a nice place to work. They have a drawer full of candy in the kitchen and anybody can eat some!
As a writer, I have had a lot of experience with P/W over the years and have found them to be always gracious and professional.
a lot of bad energy and huge egos.
Agnes Martin gave a painting to our school system in Taos, New Mexico back in the late 90s, because we're a poor state with crap schools. When he found out about it, Arne Glimcher flew out here from NYC and met with the school district representative and Agnes at her condo here, and basically scolded her and told her she was not allowed to donate any work to anybody anywhere, as PACE held exclusive rights to her work. She was in her bathrobe on the edge of her bed, I was told, and was very embarrassed and sorry about her "mistake", so we had to give the painting back. I think it sucks when the gallery owns the art, not the artist, if there's an exclusivity clause. Just sayin.'
