Lehmann Maupin Gallery is delighted to announce its participation in Art Basel Miami Beach with a booth presentation of works by artists Hernan Bas, Billy Childish, Mary Corse, Teresita Fernández, Klara Kristalova, Mickalene Thomas, Angel Otero, Tony Oursler, Do Ho Suh, Nari Ward, and Erwin Wurm.
Highlights will include a half-booth of works by Austrian artist Erwin Wurm, who will open Beauty Business at the Bass Museum of Art, Miami on 30 November, 2011. Highlighting the artist's humorous approach to his multidisciplinary works, the exhibition will present a variety of works, including sculptures with a performative aspect, such as the Drinking Sculptures. These works invite viewers to sit down and drink alcohol, and only when the viewer is drunk is the work complete. Additional highlights include works by minimalist artist Mary Corse, a recent addition to the Lehmann Maupin roster; paintings by Billy Childish and ceramic sculptures by Klara Kristalova - both artists currently have exhibitions up at our Lower East Side and Chelsea locations, respectively; and works by Teresita Fernández, recently appointed to the U.S. Commission of Fine Arts by President Obama. During Art Basel Miami Beach, MoCA Miami will celebrate its 15th anniversary with the presentation of Fernández's Swimming Pool, a work first shown at the museum in 1996 for their inaugural exhibition.
Lehmann Maupin will also be a participating gallery in the Art Basel Miami Beach Video Program. Tracey Emin's Sometimes the Dress is Worth More Money than the Money and Jennifer Steinkamp's Orbit 11 will be on view on the 7000-square-foot projection wall of the New World Center. Both films will also be on view for visitors in the five viewing pods inside the Miami Beach Convention Centre.
