The Problem With Diversity In Art And Tech

The Problem With Diversity In Art And Tech

Forbes, by Ann Binlot

November 29, 2018

Both the worlds of art and diversity are run predominantly by straight white men, and a few organizations like Out in Tech are trying to do something about it by promoting diversity in the world of tech. Out in Tech brings the LGBTQ+ and the tech communities together. Last November 14, the organization had an event at art gallery Lehmann Maupin's new Chelsea space as lesbian artist Catherine Opie's exhibition The Modernist hung at the gallery. That night, Out in Tech announced a new initiative  that connects LGBTQ+ youth, particularly those who are people of color, to internships in the tech world. I asked George Wells, the COO of Lehmann Maupin board member of Out in Tech, about the problem with diversity in the worlds of art and tech, and what can be done to facilitate change.

Rachel Lehmann And David Maupin Discuss New Chelsea Flagship, Their Drive For Equality In Art

Forbes, by Ann Binlot

September 28, 2018

Rachel Lehmann and David Maupin founded their gallery Lehmann Maupin in 1996 with a storefront in New York’s SoHo neighborhood. Since then, Lehmann Maupin has turned into a global art powerhouse with locations in New York, Hong Kong, and Seoul, showing artists like Mickalene Thomas, OSGEMEOS, McArthur Binion, Catherine Opie, Gilbert & George, Teresita Fernandez, Juergen Teller, and more. The duo recently expanded to a massive 8,500-square-foot, three-story flagship in Chelsea where a Getty Gas Station once stood, in the new Peter Marino-designed Getty building. An exhibition by Liza Lou served as the gallery’s inaugural show, featuring intricate beaded wall hangings made in part by women in South Africa. Lou would then explore the materiality of the beaded panels by smashing and destroying them to create textured patterns within the work. I quizzed Lehmann and Maupin about the strategy behind selecting the space, how they planned its design, diversity in the art world, and what’s next for the global gallery.

It’s a ‘Leaser’s Market’ With ‘Unheard-Of’ Rents: Why Blue-Chip Galleries Are Doubling Down in New York’s Chelsea

Artnet, by Eileen Kinsella

September 6, 2018

Veteran art dealer Rachel Lehmann had something of an epiphany a few years ago when a curator visiting from Chicago apologized profusely for not having made it to the Chelsea gallery’s Lower East Side outpost during his visit. “He was here for two days and there was so much to see in Chelsea,” recalls Lehmann. The takeaway? “Being less accessible in terms of location just adds another layer of complication. That’s another battle we didn’t want to fight. The critical mass is in Chelsea,” she says.

For two decades, Lehmann Maupin has championed some of contemporary art’s most beloved luminaries, such as Do Ho Suh, Juergen Teller, and Mickalene Thomas. Founded by Rachel Lehmann and David Maupin in 1996, the gallery has had multiple homes around New York, as well as one in Hong Kong and another in Seoul to match its growing profile. Now it occupies the former site of the Getty—gas station, that is—which was an indelible landmark in New York’s Chelsea neighborhood. As of early September, Lehmann Maupin’s space is in a mixed-use residential building developed by the Victor Group, fittingly dubbed the Getty.

Lehmann Maupin Announces Representation of The Estate of Heidi Bucher

Lehmann Maupin Announces Representation of The Estate of Heidi Bucher

Lehmann Maupin is pleased to announce its representation of The Heidi Bucher Estate. Heidi Bucher was a Swiss artist best known for her innovative use of latex and her exploration of the physical boundaries between the body and our surroundings. Bucher’s practice can be considered an intricate process of historical preservation and metaphorical molting, which results in the poetic visualization of the complex relationship humans have with their bodies, their past, and the spaces they inhabit. Through this intensive investigation into the female body and domestic spaces, Bucher’s work seamlessly integrated two contemporaneous themes artists were grappling with during the 1970s and 1980s: the architecture of public and private spaces, and issues of femininity and the body.

The multidisciplinary Chilean artist’s work addresses critical issues of the modern era—ecological destruction, feminism, human rights, and cultural homogenization—through her genre-bending projects uniting poetry, performance, painting, and site-specific installations that span more than 40 years. Vicuña lives and works in New York and Chile. Vicuña’s inaugural exhibition with the gallery will open May 19 at 536 West 22nd Street. A joint project with the artist is planned for the Brooklyn Museum and the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, in the spring and fall of 2018.
