Christiana Ine-Kimba Boyle

Director of Online Sales, Pace Gallery

Christiana Ine-Kimba Boyle has served as director of online sales at Pace Gallery since her appointment in spring 2021. During her tenure, she has expanded the gallery’s digitally native offerings and activated Pace’s robust online sales strategy by engaging new audiences and cultivating its existing global network, generating exponential growth for the gallery’s digital projects.

Ms. Boyle has been instrumental in the development and success of Pace Verso, the gallery’s hub for Web3 projects. Through its proprietary NFT platform, the gallery shows and sells NFTs and other digital projects created by artists within and beyond its program. Launched in 2021, Pace Verso’s NFT platform was created as part of a partnership with Palm, a new NFT-optimized blockchain network for culture and creativity, built by and for the open Ethereum ecosystem. Past and current NFT projects have spotlighted digital works by Jeff Koons, Zhang Huan, Glenn Kaino, DRIFT, Lucas Samaras, Simon Denny, Urs Fischer, John Gerrard and other artists.

In her role, Ms. Boyle also develops curated online programs as a complement to the gallery’s brick-and-mortar exhibitions across its ten locations worldwide, as well as its art fair presentations. Her first curated presentation at Pace, “Convergent Evolutions: The Conscious of Body Work,” paired 17 intergenerational artists from the gallery’s program alongside works by additional artists in her network. The presentation was available for viewing at Pace’s New York gallery as well as online.

Ms. Boyle came to Pace from the Canada gallery, where she built and oversaw online sales strategies, including the launch of the gallery’s inaugural online viewing room and virtual performance platform. With a strong background in curatorial work, she collaborated with artists on new commissions for Canada’s digital platform as part of a series of special projects geared towards client cultivation. Her physical curatorial debut, “Black Femme: Sovereign of WAP and the Virtual Realm,” achieved critical acclaim and featured multimedia works by Caitlin Cherry, Delphine Desane, Emily Manwaring, Kenya (Robinson), Sydney Vernon and Qualeasha Wood.
