2015 Fall Art Preview: The 28 New York Exhibitions Everyone Should See

Billy Childish at Lehmann Maupin


British artist Billy Childish is back in New York for his fourth exhibition with Lehmann Maupin, which even includes a handy hashtag for selfies with the artist's latest oil paintings: #billychildish. (The Stuckist is moving into the Internet Age, it seems.) The exhibition, "flowers, nudes and birch trees: New Paintings 2015," features the mental wanderings of the mustachioed polymath artist, who is also a musician and "confessional poet" bent on painting scenes that evoke childhood and wonder.

Billy Childish, "flowers, nudes and birch trees: New Paintings 2015," will be on view at Lehmann Maupin from September 10 - October 31, 2015.

Switching Roles: Interview with Liu Wei and Bowen Li

“Nocturnal Friendships,” a group exhibition currently at Lehmann Maupin Hong Kong, is a pivotal show that proves the gallery to be not only a platform for emerging artists, but also one for up-and-coming curators. Behind the curatorial direction of “Nocturnal Friendships” are art historian Bowen Li and mixed-media artist Liu Wei, the latter of whom is renowned for his harsh geometric style of installations. ArtAsiaPacific caught up with the two to talk about the art of curating.

Nocturnal Friendships
HK Magazine

Curated by Liu Wei and Bowen Li, this group exhibition at Lehmann Maupin looks at the idea of friendship and how it ties in with desire and death. The seven artists’ artworks work in tandem with the concepts taken from Cicero’s “Treatise of Friendship”—basically the manifesto of How To Be A Good Friend—and from Nietzsche's idea of a “nocturnal,” insignificant friendship without substance. Because, obviously, artists need friends too.


Imponderable: The Archives of Tony Oursler
Whitewall Magazine

Tony Oursler’s “Imponderable” is currently on view at Les Recontres d’Arles 2015 (through September 20).

It is the result of an extensive research project that revolves around Oursler’s personal and family archives, curated by Bard College CCS director, Tom Eccles, and director of Stedijik Museum in Amsterdam, Beatrix Ruf.

Performa Commissions New Work by Robin Rhode
Times Square, New York

The heart of Times Square after dark probably isn’t the most genial setting for Schoenberg and the mournful atonality of “Erwartung,” or “Expectation,” his 1909 monologue for a solo soprano, and a pillar of musical modernism. But the South African artist Robin Rhode, who will stage the work there in the fall as part of the 10th anniversary of Performa, the performance-art biennial, said that when he heard Times Square was a possibility for a piece based on the Schoenberg work, he leapt at it.

Smarts, Serious Fun in Painting Exhibitions
The Wall Street Journal

Mary Corse (b. 1945) was one of the few women involved in the 1960s-and-on Southern California art movement called “Light & Space,” which typically featured ultra-minimal architectural environments instead of more conventional art objects such as paintings and sculptures. Ms. Corse has, however, chafed in print at being lumped in with that male cohort, and at criticism seeing it as having influenced her work. In any event, in 1968 she discovered glass microspheres, the reflective pellets that make highway lines and street signs glow in your headlights, and mixed them into her paint. She didn’t so much move away from Light & Space art as incorporate its challenge to visual perception itself into abstract painting.


On the surface (pun intended), there’s not that much in Ms. Corse’s large (90- to 102-inch wide) canvases: vertical bands of white, black and often one primary color. But Ms. Corse’s art is exceedingly “smart” in that way that collectors, curators and critics enjoy if they’re attuned to her kind of aesthetic intelligence. The edges are beveled inward so that the paintings seem to float slightly off the wall; the brush strokes in the reflective stripes vary to reward closer looking; and the contrast of emphatically microsphered colors to the more matte blacks is well played. In short, there’s a feeling of just-rightness to Ms. Corse’s paintings.


Mitigating this near-perfection—just a bit—is the questionably chosen hue of a bloody red (Ms. Corse’s blue and yellow are more primary), and a dozen works in the show when half that would have given her paintings needed meditative space. Nevertheless, this is one of the best gallery painting exhibitions in a long while.

Artist Teresita Fernández Transforms New York’s Madison Square Park

This spring, with her installation Fata Morgana, Fernández transforms a New York City park into a shimmering landscape—the artist’s most ambitious (and public) project to date


In the Studio: Nari Ward, Part I

Harlem is a peculiar place. The ghosts of literati past that linger through its present cultural gatekeepers, the gentrification that went from 0 to 60 in under six seconds. It’s riddled with good food, good music, and good people and rife with boarded brownstones at a million a pop. The air hugs you a little bit tighter uptown. The smell is sweeter, the cops bolder. The sound of Harlem, its heartbeat, hits you fast and strong.


Quieted on this given Sunday, an unusually temperate February evening, as the artist Nari Ward shuts the door behind me and leads me into his ground-level, Sugar Hill-adjacent studio. The space sits long and almost narrow. On the concrete floor rests residential-sized sculptures and installations, no less dramatic than the monumental objects for which he’s become known. Some of the work is still evolving, their resolution incomplete. Others are immediately recognizable.


A stacked Liquorsoul sculpture, the last in its series rests at the south end of the studio. Towards the north end stands a worktable. On it are tools, hardware, and papers, ideas in progress. Nari unfolds two chairs in the middle of the room and we get started. For the next hour or so, the 50-something year old artist waxes poetically on materiality and body, on resilience and the South, on disconnection and re-education, but I’ll let him tell it.


Hong Kong Is the Premiere Regional Fair: David Maupin

The insider guide to Art Basel Hong Kong

Chris Mugan and Diana D’Arenberg ask leading local and international art figures about the artists, shows and galleries to look out for at Asia's premier art fair — and the trends to follow


Rachel Lehmann: Visitors should look out for the continued development and sophistication of booths. We strive to develop presentations that are defined by a clear curatorial vision, an extension of gallery programming, rather than simply a commercial opportunity. Locally, collectors are branching out beyond their traditional interest in Chinese painting as they consider the Western contemporary market and moving into more dynamic forms, such as installation and sculpture, even multimedia works. I’m particularly excited to see how Hong Kong-based and international audiences receiveLiu Wei’s exhibition, Colors, at the Ullens Center for Contemporary Art.

The Glow Coming to Madison Square
The New York Times

Public art projects in Madison Square Park — the urban oasis between Madison and Fifth Avenues from 23rd to 26th Streets — have been beautiful, bemusing and sometimes even a tad creepy. One of the most outrageous took place in 2009, when 31 slightly different sculptures of a naked man dotted the park’s grounds, were perched along rooftops on neighboring buildings and scattered around the sidewalks of the Flatiron district. The figure, cast by the British sculptor Antony Gormley from his own body, caused quite a stir. One passer-by called 911, having mistaken a sculpture perched on the ledge of the Empire State Building for a jumper.

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.
