days before the doors open at Frieze London, our friends at Lehmann Maupin
took us behind the scenes for the installation of one of the most
exciting booths at the fair. While the allure of a polished booth is nothing
short of magic, we couldn’t resist the chance to get a look at the nitty-gritty
of mounting a museum-quality exhibition—in miniature, in two days.
by a Shirazeh Houshiary painting and a Tracey Emin embroidery, Do Ho Suh’s Secret Garden gets the
Lehmann Maupin's director of sales Carla Camacho works in
front of a photograph from Alex Prager's “Face in the Crowd” series. Frieze
marks the gallery’s debut presentation of Prager’s work, whose solo exhibition
at the Corcoran opens in November.
A face-off between two large-scale embroideries, by longtime Lehmann
Maupin artist and British sensation Tracey Emin.
