Lehmann Maupin's first major in-person activation at Cromwell Place will feature a residency with British artist Billy Childish.
During this time, the artist will transform the space into an active studio and develop a series of new paintings onsite inspired by a book of intimate autobiographical photographs to be published on the occasion of this residency: billy childish, photography 1974 - 2020 (L-13 Light Industrial Workshop 2020). Intended as an immersive experience, the public will be invited to witness Childish’s creative process firsthand. Midway through the residency, Lehmann Maupin will also host a public conversation with Childish to provide deeper insight into his multi-dimensional practice.
