LEHMANN MAUPIN BEIJING
Blanc International Contemporary Art Space
Building D7, Yard No.3, Jinhang East Road
Shunyi District, Beijing
Lehmann Maupin continues its seasonal space in Shunyi District, Beijing through January 2022. This space, which marks the gallery’s first physical location in Beijing, follows the success of recent pop-ups in Aspen, Palm Beach, and Taipei. Lehmann Maupin Beijing will be located at the Blanc Art Space (Tianzhu Comprehensive Bonded Zone) in the Shunyi District, Beijing, which will function as an arts hub for international and regional galleries.
This winter, Lehmann Maupin Beijing will mount a solo presentation of works by New York-based artist Marilyn Minter, who creates empowering photographs, painting, and videos that offer nuanced representations of women and the treatment of the female body in popular media. Through her subversion of beauty and glamour imagery, Minter exposes the double standards that influence women’s identities and challenges the historic portrayal of women through images. Debuting in Beijing is a selection of large-scale photographs, where Minter partially obscures bathers behind frosty or steamed panes of glass, giving her subjects the power to control how they allow the viewer to consume their image. In recent years, Minter’s work has been the subject of solo exhibitions at the Museum of Modern Art, New York, NY; SCAD Museum of Art, Savannah, GA; and the Brooklyn Museum, New York, NY.
Each solo presentation will be accompanied by a viewing room intended to showcase the full extent of the gallery’s program, with rotating works ranging from painting and sculpture to photography and large-scale video by gallery artists McArthur Binion, Lee Bul, Billy Childish, and Angel Otero.
