Public lured by a more open Linda Pace Foundation will find tragedy, magical reflexivity in 'Ten Thousand Waves'

Still from Isaac Julien's film Ten Thousand Waves.


Since the beginning of the year, the Linda Pace Foundation has quietly introduced a number of events within the penthouse and at CHRISpark, fronting the foundation's business offices. This autumn more events will roll out as the foundation provides greater public access to this ever-growing collection. To facilitate this, Steven Evans was named in 2010 to the new post of Executive Director and Curator of the Linda Pace Foundation after a 20-year tenure at the Dia Art Foundation in New York (where he was manager of Dia: Beacon since its opening). Evans met Pace while at Dia; she was a supporter and board member of the New York arts nonprofit. He recalls her as "a remarkable woman — quiet, strong, but she could be intimidating. Intensely observant and intelligent about artwork." Now more accessible than ever, Evans suggests that, "This is a more contemporary version of a historic house museum." The collection is open for viewing by appointment — find the "visit" section on their website Though they don't keep retail hours, efforts are made to accommodate group tours, chiefly during weekdays. Individuals may be offered several dates when they may be able to join group tours previously scheduled. •
