Lehmann Maupin is pleased to present a virtual conversation and book launch with Matthew Higgs, Director and Chief Curator of White Columns, and British artist Billy Childish, whose multi-disciplinary practice and creative process are the subject of a residency at the gallery’s new space in London at 1 Cromwell Place (October 5–25). Higgs notably curated Childish’s first solo exhibition with Lehmann Maupin ‘I Am the Billy Childish’ in 2011.
Coinciding with Frieze Week in London, this conversation will explore Childish’s decades-long career as he approaches a new series of paintings inspired by a book of intimate autobiographical ‘photographs: billy childish, photography 1974–2020’ (BC Studio Editions, 2020). The photobook will be released in conjunction with the residency.
