Nari Ward: LIVESupport / Lehmann Maupin, New York

LIVESupport is Nari Ward’s first solo exhibition at Lehmann Maupin Gallery in New York. The new body of work on display consists of sculptures, works on paper, and video. Subject-matter is the idea of support – physical, spiritual, social and judicial. The centerpiece of LIVESupport is “Sick Smoke”, a smoke-filled ambulance covered in opaque and transparent white vinyl, allowing only traces of its signage to be visible.

On Saturday, 6 March, 2010 at 1:30 PM Lehmann Maupin Gallery will present a discussion and Q+A session with Nari Ward. Ward’s work will also be on view at Lehmann Maupin’s Armory Show Stand (Pier 94, 911), 4-7 March, 2010.

Ward’s work is currently on view through 14 March, 2010 at the Studio Museum in Harlem as part of the exhibit 30 Seconds Off an Inch. Ward’s work has been included in the 2008 Prospect.1 New Orleans biennial, 2006 Whitney Biennial in New York and in Documenta XI in Kassel, Germany in 2003.

Nari Ward: LIVESupport / Lehmann Maupin, 540 West 26th Street, New York. Opening Reception, February 25, 2010.
