Lehmann Maupin

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.

This exhibition is open Tuesday through Saturday until 24 October, open from Tuesday through Saturday.

Lehmann Maupin

Since inception, Lehmann Maupin has been instrumental in introducing international artists in new geographies. This mission has resulted in historic first exhibitions in New York, Hong Kong, and Seoul. 

Lehmann Maupin London, located at Cromwell Place, functions as a dynamic multi-purpose space, offering an alternative to the traditional gallery model. Conceived in response to the shifting needs of its artists and the broader arts community, Lehmann Maupin London is foregoing a fixed exhibition program and instead engage in site-specific activations, installations, and performances.

This innovative model allows the gallery to develop focused presentations that highlight critical issues of the day, while also providing a platform for artists to think outside of the traditional presentation of a new body of work. In addition, the gallery hosts a regular series of public programs to keep audiences engaged in the current practices and concerns of its artists.
