Lehmann Maupin Spotlights Nari Ward & Robin Rhode in "Power Wall" Virtual ExhibitExploring how the artists engage with physical walls for creative expression.
Lehmann Maupin just launched a digital walkthrough of its latest exhibition in Hong Kong called “Power Wall.” The presentation features progressive, mixed media works by South African artist Robin Rhode and Jamaican-born artist Nari Ward. The show aims to shed light on how each artist uses the physical wall as a surface for their individual, creative expression.
Ward is widely-known for his sprawling wall installations comprised of found shoelaces that feature politically-charged text and subjects when viewed from afar. Rhode, on the other hand, spearheads a performative approach with his dynamic works on physical spaces. Like Ward, the artist utilizes non-traditional materials such as soap to create figurative-meets-abstract compositions that evoke solidarity.
