The gallery is pleased to announce a major, double gallery exhibition of works by Light and Space artist, Helen Pashgian. The Los Angeles-based artist’s first solo exhibition in Asia will span both of Lehmann Maupin’s Hong Kong and Seoul galleries and feature new work from her most notable Column, Lens, Sphere, and wall mounted sculptural series. Working during the 1960s amidst artists such as James Turrell, Robert Irwin, Larry Bell, Mary Corse, DeWain Valentine, and Peter Alexander, Pashgian has been recognized as a key figure in advancing the techniques necessary to harness the art-making potential of industrial mediums including plastic epoxies and resins. She transforms these raw materials into ethereal works that give the illusion of both containing and emanating light.

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.
