Lemm has received critical recognition from Art in America, The New Yorker, Art World (U.K.), NY Arts Magazine, Time Out Chicago, The Los Angeles Times, The Village Voice, and numerous visual art blogs. His work has also been selected for editorial features in H-Magazine (Spain) and Someone’s Garden Magazine (Japan), and was included in the book ‘Light and Lens’ by Robert Hirsch. In 2008, the Goethe-Instituts in Chicago and New York hosted artist talks with Sebastian Lemm and critics Gregory Volk and Michael Weinstein.
