Best of the Best: Five Booths at Art Basel Hong Kong
New York Observer
Lehmann Maupin balances its display between East and West, with works by Lee Bul, Do Ho Suh and Liu Wei juxtaposed by pieces from Americans Angel Otero, David Salle and Mickalene Thomas. The focal point of the booth, however, is British art star Tracey Emin, who’s having a two-gallery exhibition of new paintings, sculptures, neons and embroideries at the Hong Kong spaces of both Lehmann Maupin and the London-based gallery White Cube, which represents the artist in her hometown. Jointly titled “I Cried Because I Love You,” the doubleheader delves deeply into Ms. Emin’s love life, a favorite topic of the former YBA (Young British Artist), who’s now a more experienced MBE (Member of the Order of the British Empire).
