Nari Ward: Amazing Grace

January 17 - April 21, 2013

First exhibited in 1993 in an abandoned fire station on 141st Street, “Amazing Grace” is composed of more than three hundred abandoned baby strollers collected by Ward off the streets of Harlem. Arranged alongside strips of fire hose in the shape of a ship’s hull, the installation is accompanied by an audio recording of Mahalia Jackson’s performance of ‘Amazing Grace’, playing on a loop. Ward was inspired by his subject matter after observing a stray stroller amid rush hour traffic at the 125th Street Metro North station. The emptiness of the lone stroller so affected Ward that he sought to heighten the sadness he associated with it by grouping hundreds of found strollers together to form a social commentary on the evolution of this hard-hit neighborhood. "Amazing Grace" is presented as part of the New Museum's exhibition NYC 1993: Experimental Jet Set, Trash and No Star.

Lehmann Maupin Gallery Now Representing Robin Rhode

April 2012

We are pleased to announce that Lehmann Maupin Gallery is now the New York representative for artist, Robin Rhode. Embracing a variety of media - principally photography, but also drawing, animation, performance and sculpture - the work of Robin Rhode uses simple, ephemeral devices to comment on urban youth culture, colonialism and socio-economic issues in a simple, witty and subtly effective way. His work often uses the street as his canvas or his backdrop, alluding to hip-hop and the role of graffiti artists, and he often operates within the gritty aesthetic associated with that culture. Lehmann Maupin will present Rhode's work at Frieze New York, May 4-7, and at ISTANBUL'74 as part of the 2012 Istanbul International Arts & Culture Festival May 25th- 27th.
