NOVEMBER 23th 2018 - JANUARY 13th 2019 

 The coherence and the originality of Pace's artistic journey has been well described in 2014 by Mariastella Margozzi of the National Gallery of Modern Art of Rome : "Pace, is one of the the leading exponents of “filtranisme”, the philosophical and artistic neo existentialist current that he founded in Paris in the mid 80s. His work gives an artistic and intellectual pathway with which the artist reinterprets many of our psychic realities. With a refined and aesthetic language, his sculptures are made with thousands of pieces of costume jewelry, mostly vintage, which the artist recovers from the residues of industrial production in every part of the world, thus creating a sort of research in the "industrial archeology" field applied to the decoration of the body of our times. Through different techniques, Pace put together different creatives and users generations. Pace’s work has been the subject of several exhibitions in museums and other institutions, in Paris, Marseille, Munich, Madrid, Barcelona, Sevilla, São Paulo, Brasilia, Jaguariuna, Rome, Alessandria, Alba, Milan, Padua and Venice.”
