Celebrating its fiftieth anniversary, Pace African and Oceanic Art has launched a new and expanded website intended to bring home the gallery experience. The new site offers several elements. One is a “viewing room,” which offers virtual access to the gallery’s exhibitions through text and studio images. “Available artworks” shows a current inventory of artworks within the price range of $1,000–100,000 (though individual prices are not listed). More expensive works are available by appointment, whether physical or virtual. Finally, an archive provides a survey of works handled by Pace African & Oceanic Art since 1971. While not comprehensive, it is a glimpse into the breadth and depth of artworks sold to collectors and public and private institutions.
