Galerie Lelong & Co.

Inaugural Partner: ART 2030 New York

528 W 26th Street, New York City

Galerie Lelong & Co. represents prominent contemporary artists and estates from the United States, Latin America, Europe, Asia, and Australia. This uniquely diverse group includes mid-career and established artists at the forefront of the international art world working across all media.

Selected artist: Andy Goldsworthy

In a diverse career spanning four decades, Andy Goldsworthy has become one of the most prominent and iconic contemporary sculptors. In photographs, sculptures, installations, and films, Goldsworthy documents his explorations of the effects of time, the relationship between humans and their natural surroundings, and the beauty in loss and regeneration. Goldsworthy’s permanent projects and ephemeral works contrast in their scale, tension, and lifetime, but are unified through their responses to the environment and his constant investigation into understanding the landscape he is in.

The artist was born in Cheshire, England, in 1956, and is now based in Scotland.

Selected artist: Alfredo Jaar

Alfredo Jaar, "Be Afraid of the Enormity of the Possible", 2015, Neon, 47 1/2 x 72 inches (120.7 x 182.9 cm), Edition of 3 + 3 APs. Photo credit: © Alfredo Jaar, Courtesy Galerie Lelong & Co., New York.

Alfredo Jaar is an uncompromising and innovative artist, architect, and filmmaker. For over 30 years, Jaar has used photographs, film, installation, and new media to create compelling works that examine complex socio-political issues and the limits and ethics of representation. By using a hybrid form of art-making, Jaar has consistently provoked, questioned, and searched for ways to heighten our consciousness about issues often forgotten or suppressed in the international sphere, while not relinquishing art’s formal and aesthetic power. Over his career, Jaar has explored significant political and social issues including genocide, the displacement of refugees across borders, and the balance of power between developing and industrialized nations.

Jaar was born in Santiago, Chile, in 1956 and has been based in New York City since 1982.

Selected artist: Rosemary Laing

Rosemary Laing, "Drapery and wattle", 2017, Archival pigment print, 23 5/8 x 36 inches (60 x 91.5 cm), Edition of 8. Photo credit: © Rosemary Laing, Courtesy Galerie Lelong & Co., New York.

Rosemary Laing is an Australian artist known for her photo-based work that is cinematic in vision and created with real-time performance and physical installation as opposed to digital manipulation. In culturally and historically resonant locations across Australia, Laing meticulously stages interventions. Her work is informed by post-colonial perspectives on the occupation and ownership of land and speculates upon how the past intersects with the present situation. Laing frequently works in series, creating thematic bodies of work that are large in scale and scope and accumulatively form an ongoing narrative of events that have impacted cultural consciousness.

Born in 1959 in Brisbane, Australia, Laing currently lives and works in Sydney, Australia.

Selected artist: Lin Tianmiao

Lin Tianmiao, "Protruding Patterns", 2014, Wool, thread, yarn, acrylic, Dimensions variable. Installation view: "Lin Tianmiao: Protruding Patterns", Galerie Lelong & Co., New York, September 7 – October 21, 2017. Photo credit: © Lin Tianmiao, Courtesy Galerie Lelong & Co., New York.

Part of the “apartment art” generation, Lin Tianmiao is one of the first contemporary Chinese artists to achieve international recognition. She is known for her practice of thread winding in which she binds the material – usually silk, hair, cotton, or felt – tightly around found and manufactured objects. Initially tasked by her mother to spool cotton as a young girl, Lin later reclaimed the act. Lin’s work studies her own social role and the relationship between identity and social context, questioning the identity of woman and the conventional idea of the social role of woman as mother. Best known for her large-scale installations, Lin also works in sculpture, photography, video, and a variety of other media.

Lin was born in in 1961 in Taiyuan, China. She now lives and works in Beijing, China.

Selected artist: Ana Mendieta

Ana Mendieta, "Untitled: Silueta Series", 1978, Super-8mm film transferred to high-definition digital media, color, silent. Running time: 3:14 minutes. Edition of 8 + 3 APs. Photo credit: © The Estate of Ana Mendieta Collection, LLC, Courtesy Galerie Lelong & Co.

In a brief yet prolific career, the Cuban-born artist Ana Mendieta created groundbreaking work in photography, film, video, drawing, sculpture, and site-specific installations. Amongst the major themes in her work are exile, displacement, and a return to the landscape, which remain profoundly relevant today. Her unique hybrid of form and documentation, works that she titled “siluetas,” are fugitive and potent traces of the artist’s inscription of her body in the landscape, often transformed by natural elements such as fire and water.

The Estate of Ana Mendieta Collection, LLC, in collaboration with Galerie Lelong & Co., recently catalogued and digitized the entirety of Mendieta’s moving image works, discovering that the artist remarkably made more than 100 in the ten-year period in which she worked in the medium.

Mendieta was born in Havana, Cuba, in 1948, and died in New York City in 1985.

Selected artist: Yoko Ono

Yoko Ono is a multi-media artist working in performance, instruction, film, installation, music, and writing. A forerunner in conceptual art involving collaboration, audience participation, and social activism since the early 1960s, Ono challenges viewers’ understanding of art and the world around them. Her influence spans many of the key artistic movements of the late 20th century including Fluxus, conceptual art, video art, and feminism. In addition to her work as a visual artist, Ono is also a musical pioneer, both an accomplished singer and songwriter.

Born in Tokyo, Japan, in 1933, Yoko Ono lives and works in New York City.
