About Lehmann Maupin
Since its establishment nearly two decades ago, Lehmann Maupin has identified and cultivated the careers of an international roster of visionary and historically significant artists. The gallery has garnered a reputation for supporting artists working in new and challenging forms; artists whose work has had a lasting impact on contemporary art and culture. Working closely with curators and leading intellectuals in the field, Lehmann Maupin is committed to presenting its artists on an international level and to firmly establishing their contributions to art history in the 21st century and beyond.
Founded by partners Rachel Lehmann and David Maupin, Lehmann Maupin first opened in SoHo in October 1996, and in September 2002, moved to its present location in Chelsea. A second New York gallery space opened in late 2007 in Manhattan's new cultural hub, the Lower East Side. Most recently, the gallery inaugurated its first international exhibition space in the historic Pedder Building in Central, Hong Kong. Since it’s inception, Lehmann Maupin has worked closely with world-renowned architect Rem Koolhaas and his firm OMA on the redesign of the SoHo, Chelsea, and now, Hong Kong galleries.
