Los Angeles artist Sterling Ruby, who first showed with Pace Gallery about two years ago and had been positioned in some press coverage as something of a cornerstone of its contemporary program, is no longer with the gallery.

“Sterling Ruby is their new base on which to build,” art adviser Allan Schwartzman told the WSJ magazine back in August.

Industry newsletter The Baer Faxt broke the news today, and Pace Gallery’s Andrea Glimcher confirmed that the two parties have “parted company.”
