Hong Kong, 6 November 2013—Lehmann Maupin (Booth 30D) is pleased to announce its participation in the 20th anniversary edition of ART TAIPEI from 8 – 11 November 2013. Lehmann Maupin’s commitment to exhibiting sought-after contemporary artists from around the world is exemplified in the presentation of acclaimed Eastern and Western artists that will be on view in the gallery’s inaugural booth at ART TAIPEI. A diverse range of works will be featured, including paintings, sculptures, photographs, and works on paper by leading artists Lee Bul, Do Ho Suh, Tracey Emin, and Robin Rhode, some of whom will appear at ART TAIPEI for the first time.
Gallery co-founder Rachel Lehmann said, "Lehmann Maupin is extremely pleased to participate for the first time in Art Taipei. After establishing our first international gallery space in Hong Kong earlier this year and having done business in Asia since the mid-1990s, we are looking forward to bringing exceptional works by internationally respected artists to important collectors and curators in this vital region."
Booth highlights include a stainless steal wall sculpture by Lee Bul that is characteristic of the artist’s formally inventive, intellectually provocative oeuvre and demonstrates the unwavering defiance of aesthetic boundaries present in her work; Tracey Emin’s Trust Yourself, which explores the simultaneous public and private nature of her work by using neon writing as a visual poetry to express the artist’s emotions; Broken Glass and The Point of Vanishing by Robin Rhode, which unite his body and his imagery in choreographic gestures that exemplify the artist’s hybrid street-based aesthetic; and a life-size fabric radiator from Do Ho Suh’s acclaimed Specimen Series, a replica of that appliance from the artist’s New York City apartment. Suh’s ongoing exploration of domestic spaces he has inhabited and his memories of them will be the subject of his first solo show at Lehmann Maupin, Hong Kong from 14 November 2013 – 25 January 2013.
