New York-headquartered Pace Gallery will open its first permanent space in Japan in the first half of 2024 through a 510-square-meter gallery space in Mori Building’s Azabudai Hills development in central Tokyo.

The gallery, which already has a physical presence in Seoul and Hong Kong, previously maintained links with Japan through its representation of artists including teamLab and Lee Ufan.

Pace was founded in 1960 by Arne Glimcher, considered a New York tastemaker. The gallery represents the work of prominent artists including Mark Rothko and Jeff Koons, and has steadily expanded beyond the United States.
