Watch now: John Akomfrah, Anish Kapoor and Liu Xiaodong feature in season 10 of Art21's 'Art in the Twenty-first Century'
Shirazeh Houshiary in East Hampton
10 – 20 September
Lisson Gallery is pleased to present Shirazeh Houshiary's Only a Flicker (2016) in East Hampton. The exhibition coincides with the opening of a solo exhibition of work by the artist at Lisson Gallery in Shanghai (September 11 – October 24, 2020). ‘As Time Stood Still’ is her first presentation in the Chinese city, and encompasses a series of new works created and inspired by the artist’s experience of lockdown in the UK, where she is based. As with much of her work, these concurrent exhibitions are deeply personal and philosophical, exploring profound questions about perception and imagination, as well as the fundamental power of beauty.
Since its inauguration this summer, Lisson Gallery’s 1,000 square foot East Hampton space has presented exhibitions focused on both seminal, historic artworks and premiered new bodies of work. Previous artists on view include Stanley Whitney, Carmen Herrera, Anish Kapoor, Van Hanos, Joanna Pousette-Dart and Sean Scully. This focused format, in an intimate setting, recalls the origins of Lisson Gallery, which was established in 1967 in a storefront window on London’s Bell Street.
