Lehmann Maupin gallery will open its second New York space at West 24th Street and 10th Avenue and the first exhibition will be a showcase of feminist artist
Liza Lou, who returns to the spotlight since her last show in 2008.

With beaded pop culture, consumerist and feminine objects, the exhibition “Classification and Nomenclature of Clouds” opens on September 6 with her beaded sculptures, a material that since the 1990s, she has been working with since spending five years applying beads of a fully-scaled kitchen.

There will be an installation of The Clouds, a 100-foot-long woven painting modeled after Monet’s triptych Les Nuages, as well as other objects, be it Campbell soup cans, Windex bottles and more.

“The earliest known bead is dated 100,000 years ago, and they are among the earliest objects ever produced,” Lou told Surface magazine. “Beads carry the history of mankind, and yet they have zero history as a formal art material – I was, and still am, excited to work with something that carries so much weight and yet is weightless.”
