This week Lisson Gallery is participating in Abu Dhabi Art 2013 in the Saadiyat Cultural District (from 20 to 23 November). As well as works by Anish Kapoor, Richard Long, Pedro Reyes and Santiago Sierra, the gallery is presenting a special display of the four monumental canvases – North, South, East and West – that comprise Liu Xiaodong's Hotan Project series (2012), which were painted in and around the notorious
opencast jade mines and the devastated landscapes of a remote area of China’s largest, most westerly province of Xinjiang.

There is also a new photographic work by Marina Abramović (pictured here and entitled, In the Sea of Silence, 2013), which was made during her recent tour of the United Arab Emirates. Shirazeh Houshiary will also be represented by a dozen key pieces dating from 1998 to the present day. The artist will also be participating in Abu Dhabi Art Talk at 3.30pm on 21 November 2013.
