Lehmann Maupin Seoul

Cecilia Vicuña

Feb 18 – Apr 24

Niña Mapuche by Cecilia Vicuña, lithography with hand coloring (watercolor) on mulberry paper with bamboo and red thread, 85 x 90 cm, Edition 1 of 10 with 2, 1975-2021.

The gallery is pleased to announce Quipu Girok, an exhibition of new work by Chilean artist Cecilia Vicuña featuring her first “painted” quipu, a recent video, hand-painted prints, drawings, and an installation of precarios that will engage a dialogue between Korean and Andean textile traditions and techniques. An artist, filmmaker, poet, and activist based in New York, Vicuña’s work ranges from performance, to painting, to poetry, to large-scale installations that address pressing concerns of the modern world, including ecological destruction, human rights, and cultural homogenization. The exhibition marks Vicuña’s second with the gallery and is her first solo presentation in Asia. Quipu Girok will coincide with the Gwangju Biennale, which will feature a selection of Vicuña’s paintings from the 1970s and a number of textile prints. These prints are a recreation of a series of paintings on fabric that the artist produced from 1975-1977 as an homage to the women who served in the Vietnam War.

Since its establishment nearly two decades ago Lehmann Maupin has identified and cultivated the careers of an international roster of visionary and historically significant artists. The gallery has garnered a reputation for supporting artists working across disciplines and with new and challenging forms of creative expression; artists whose work has had a lasting impact on contemporary art and culture.

Lehmann Maupin has given some of contemporary art’s most highly respected artists their first one-person exhibitions in New York, including Anya Gallaccio, Shirazeh Houshiary, Klara Kristalova, Liu Wei, Do Ho Suh, Juergen Teller, and Adriana Varejão. In addition, the gallery has highlighted emerging talents, such as Mickalene Thomas, Hernan Bas, Angel Otero, and the Japanese artist Mr. by organizing important solo exhibitions around the world and presenting their work at prominent international art fairs. Lehmann Maupin’s program also includes Ashley Bickerton, Billy Childish, Mary Corse, Teresita Fernández, Gilbert & George, Lee Bul, Tony Oursler, Robin Rhode, Tim Rollins and K.O.S., Jennifer Steinkamp, Nari Ward, and Erwin Wurm.

Founded by partners Rachel Lehmann and David Maupin, Lehmann Maupin first opened in SoHo in October 1996, and in September 2002, moved to Chelsea. A second New York gallery space opened in late 2007 in Manhattan’s new cultural hub, the Lower East Side. The gallery established its first international exhibition space in Hong Kong in March 2013, and relocated to a new Chelsea space in 2015.
