Each week, Artful spotlights an art experience or destination that speaks to us right now.
One of the most-anticipated art events of Spring 2020 was to have been a three-venue simultaneous exhibition of the collection of the longtime Museum of Modern Art trustee Donald B. Marron (1934-2019), in a most unusual partnership of the rival galleries Acquavella, Gagosian, and Pace. When the pandemic hit, that visual feast had to be postponed. But an amuse-bouche of sorts is now being offered at Pace's new space in East Hampton:a selection of the Marron estate's works on paper. Open only through August 20, the exhibition includes drawings by Henri Matisse, Jasper Johns, and Ellsworth Kelly as well as more contemporary artists such as Leonardo Drew and Mamma Andersson. A show-within-the-show of Ed Ruscha features his playful text-based works and signature artist's books. The big three-gallery Marron exhibition, meanwhile, will still go on in Manhattan sometime in 2021.
