Robb Report: From Sotheby’s to Pace: The Art World Is Taking Over Palm Beach This Fall
With hordes of New York City’s wealthiest citizens decamping to the Hamptons over the spring and summer to escape Covid, many of the art world’s most notable institutions followed with pop-up gallery spaces. Now, several are out to conquer another haute hideaway: Palm Beach.
The Florida locale, long a favorite winter playground for billionaires, will see the launch of an auction house and at least two top galleries: Sotheby’s, Pace and Acquavella. All three will assume residence at the Royal Poinciana Plaza, a local landmark built in the 1950s that provides 180,000 square feet of retail space among a lush grove of palm trees and water features. In short, an ideal spot to do some serious gallery hopping.
