Lehmann Maupin will present American artist Jennifer Steinkamp’s digital animation Judy Crook 4 in the first edition of the West Bund Art and Design fair in Shanghai, from October 1st to the 26th: http://bit.ly/XMuCYQ
Animations from Steinkamp’s “Judy Crook” series are currently on view through 2015 at the Joslyn Art Museum in Omaha, Nebraska as part of the museum’s permanent collection and also will be presented at the Museum of Contemporary Art Cleveland in Cleveland, Ohio this fall.
The exhibition’s title, having been there, is a reference to a quotation of cultural theorist Roland Barthes who wrote, referencing the depiction of photographic subjects, “photography set up, not a perception of the being there of an object…but a perception of its having been there.” Rhode’s photographs, in which he increasingly appears, though often in disguise, explore this idea further. By inserting himself into the photographic image and through his mark making, Rhode creates records and traces of “having been there.”
Lehmann Maupin will participate in the second edition of ArtInternational in Istanbul, from September 26-28, 2014.
"Lee attempts to salvage her own history from the ruins of the past. Similarly, her work encourages the viewer to forge critical links between the fallen societies of recent history and the precarity of the present, to question our own grandiose constructions and assume personal responsibility for a shared future we can only ever imagine."

"Photography isn’t like painting, where you can decide how you want someone to look, but Juergen manages it. It must be something to do with where he places you in the picture, and the space he leaves around you."– Vivienne Westwood
