Lehmann Maupin returns to Palm Beach with a seasonal exhibition space at a new location opening November 23 and running through April 2022. This space, which marks the gallery’s second location in Palm Beach since 2020, follows the success of pop-ups in Aspen, Taipei, and most recently, Beijing. Lehmann Maupin Palm Beach will be centrally located on Worth Avenue, in close proximity to the Norton Museum of Art and The Bunker Artspace.
“The arts community in Palm Beach has been incredibly supportive, which made it an easy decision to return this year,” says David Maupin. “We’ve seen Palm Beach grow into a staple arts destination, attracting world-renowned collectors, curators, and fellow galleries. This winter, we are presenting the range of our global program with four solo exhibitions featuring Do Ho Suh, Erwin Wurm, OSGEMEOS, and Mandy El-Sayegh.”
The gallery will inaugurate its latest location on November 23 with a solo presentation of Do Ho Suh’s new sculptural fabric works, which continue his exploration of the often precarious idea of home in a global society. Made of polyester fabric, Suh's Specimen series features one to one replicas of domestic objects, such as handles and switches, from the artist's past and current living spaces and studios. Each form is meticulously measured and modelled, while the transparency of the fabric invites reflection on the notion of memory and psychic space. As the artist explains with regards to our post-COVID reality, “our relationship with quotidian objects within the home–the handles, switches and sockets that punctuate the anatomy of our buildings and that we touch all the time–has become fraught, but we’ve also become intensely familiarised with those forms and spaces.”
Subsequent solo exhibitions will include: Erwin Wurm (January 7–February 6), OSGEMEOS (February 11–March 13), and Mandy El-Sayegh (March 18–April 10).
“Winter in South Florida brings with it a concentration of events–starting with Art Basel Miami Beach and New Wave Art Weekend–and a cross-section of the art world that’s hard to beat,” explains partner Carla Camacho, who will continue spearheading the space, alongside project director Paige Robinson. “Last year, we made many meaningful connections and are excited to return to re-engage with local collectors and institutions, including The Bunker Artspace and the Norton Museum of Art.”
The gallery will be open to the public from Tuesday to Saturday from 11:00 AM to 6:00 PM, on Sunday from 12:00 to 5:00 PM, and offer extended hours by appointment Monday. Full safety measures will be in effect in Palm Beach in accordance with local guidelines, including the use of face coverings at all times, observance of social distancing, and a capacity limit to minimize contact.
