Prager will show several recent photographs, including Hollywood & Vine, a work that continues the artist’s exploration of the psychological dynamics of crowds and the individuals within them.

The artist will be present for an opening reception on March 12, from 6-8PM at 407 Pedder Building, 12 Pedder Street, Hong Kong.
Suh will present a selection from his Rubbing/Loving series, his most elaborate use of drawing to date conveying 1:1 representations of locations and items that are of particular cultural or personal importance to the artist, in this instance, the artist’s former apartment in New York’s Chelsea neighborhood. In addition to showing at Lehmann Maupin’s booth, Suh will be honored at the Asia Society’s third annual gala in Hong Kong on March 11.
Bas is showing a new, large-scale painting, Self portrait of another painter. His work is featured in the group exhibition Tracing Shadows, opening at PLATEAU, Samsung Museum of Art in Seoul, South Korea, on March 19.
This March marks the two-year anniversary of Lehmann Maupin’s space in Hong Kong. During this period, the gallery has given several of its artists their first solo exhibitions in the city, including Hernan Bas, Lee Bul, Billy Childish, Robin Rhode, and Jennifer Steinkamp. Prager’s upcoming show continues the gallery’s commitment to developing a truly global audience for its artists and programming.
