Rachel Lehmann and David Maupin are pleased to announce the appointment of Allie Card as Senior Director, focusing on artist management and sales. Card joins Lehmann Maupin from Metro Pictures, where she has worked since 2001, most recently holding the position of Senior Director. She brings over 20 years of experience managing and advancing the careers of leading artists, including Trevor Paglen, Louise Lawler, Sara VanDerBeek, André Butzer, Olaf Breuning, and Jim Shaw, among others.
In her new position as Senior Director, Card will work alongside other members of the gallery’s leadership team to advance Lehmann Maupin’s artistic program and expand the gallery’s international network of curators, collectors, and institutions. Bridging the gallery’s Artist Liaison and Sales departments, Card will work closely with artists to execute museum placement and exhibition strategy, while strengthening the gallery’s institutional relationships. Card will be based at Lehmann Maupin’s headquarters in New York.
“Allie has been a longtime friend and champion of the gallery, which makes this a natural transition,” explains Rachel Lehmann. “Allie’s appointment enables us to continue to best serve our artists, allowing us to seize new opportunities, approach more ambitious projects, and position ourselves to attract new talent. We have long been impressed by the dynamic role she performed at a generation-defining gallery like Metro Pictures; she touched every aspect of the business—from sales strategy and growth for the gallery, to art fairs, exhibition planning, institutional relations, and artist career management. With over two decades of art world experience, she has proven time and again to be a strong leader. We are looking forward to the perspective and energy she will bring.”
“There’s no limit to the excitement and anticipation I feel about joining Lehmann Maupin,” says Card. “It is the most natural fit for me. Having known the team for so long, I feel I’m already in step with the beat of the gallery. I recognize the strong emphasis the gallery places on the nurture and care of its artists. This is a core tenet that I carry over from my time at Metro Pictures. Lehmann Maupin is committed to carefully developing its artists’ careers over time, and to seeking out the next generation of artists and amplifying their voices on a global scale.”
