NEW YORK, NY.- Lisson Gallery announced the opening of a new 8,500 square foot gallery in the Chelsea neighborhood of New York City next year. The gallery expands a longstanding presence in New York and will be the fourth permanent exhibition space of Lisson Gallery, joining two in London and a third in Milan.

Under the direction of its founder, Nicholas Logsdail, Lisson Gallery has cultivated one of the leading exhibition programs in contemporary art, introducing many of the most influential contemporary artists over the past five decades. Established in 1967 on Bell Street in London, the gallery presented the first exhibitions in London and Europe of international Minimal and Conceptual artists including Sol Lewitt, Dan Graham, Robert Mangold, Daniel Buren and On Kawara, along with pioneering British artists Art & Language, John Latham and Richard Long. The gallery’s second artistic generation from the 1980s introduced the New British Sculptors notably Tony Cragg, Richard Deacon, Shirazeh Houshiary and Anish Kapoor. Lisson Gallery has continued to represent artists of global stature including Marina Abramovic, Ai Weiwei, Tatsuo Miyajima along with emerging figures Nathalie Djurberg & Hans Berg, Ryan Gander and Haroon Mirza.

The Chelsea space will present a program of shows drawing from the 46 artists and estates the gallery represents, many of whom are not currently represented in the US. Alex Logsdail will direct and lead the New York space to build on the gallery’s global scope, and is joined by two US directors, Jeannie Freilich and Angela Brazda, who have been based at Lisson Gallery’s offices and viewing spaces on Eldridge Street for the past two years.

The New York gallery will be housed in a newly constructed ground-up building located under the High Line, spanning the city block from 24th to 23rd Street. Designed collaboratively by Christian Wassmann and Markus Dochantschi, the gallery will be constructed around the foundational elements of the High Line. Below, its polished concrete floors, informed by the aesthetic of the London galleries, will equalize the natural light provided by two large skylights dominating the main exhibition space. The south portion of the building will accommodate a private project space, offices and art handling areas. The north façade will be cast in exposed concrete with the High Line forming a canopy above the entrance at 504 West 24th Street.

Lisson Gallery New York will open in the first half of 2015.
