Andrea Glimcher joined the Pace Gallery in 1994, where she founded the first in-house communications department at a commercial art gallery. During her tenure she worked very closely with artists, estates, foundations, collectors, museum professionals, and media. Ms. Glimcher grew her department to encompass public relations, special events, advertising, digital activities, special projects, and the concept for Artifex Press (the digital catalogue raisonné company in which she is a founding partner). For two decades she played a key role in building the gallery’s brand and reputation, while serving as an advisor to various artists and estates. She collaborated on numerous exhibitions and supported scholarship within the company.
From 2002-2008, while serving in her role at the Pace Gallery, Ms. Glimcher simultaneously ran The Bellagio Gallery of Fine Art in Las Vegas where she mounted exhibitions such as Alexander Calder: The Art of Invention; Impressionism: Art in Bloom; Fabergé: Treasures from the Kremlin; Andy Warhol: The Celebrity Portraits; Treasures from Chatsworth: A British Noble House; Monet: Masterworks from the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston; The Impressionist Landscape: From Corot to van Gogh; Ansel Adams: America; and In the Master's Hand: Picasso's Ceramics.
Prior to joining Pace Gallery, Ms. Glimcher worked in the development department of the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum. Along with participating in the creation and maintenance of new programs for upper level members such as the International Circle, she assisted then Deputy Director Michael Govan in the inauguration of the Young Collectors Council.
Ms. Glimcher, who graduated cum laude from Barnard College with a B.A. in Art History, also studied at Columbia University's Reid Hall in Paris. She is a board member of ArtsConnection; on the Musical Theater Council at The Public Theater; a production underwriter of David Byrne's musical "Here Lies Love", and from 2005 to 2012, she was a Circle of Artists (board of advisors) co-chair at Film Forum in New York. In 2010, Creative Time honored Ms. Glimcher for her passionate support of innovative art, artists, and inspirational art experiences.
