Anish Kapoor in East Hampton
13 – 17 August
For the third exhibition in East Hampton, Lisson Gallery is pleased to present a recent sculpture by Anish Kapoor. This will be the artist’s second exhibition with the gallery in the United States, following his dual presentation at both of Lisson Gallery’s New York spaces in October 2019. Garnet to Laser Red (2017) is a wall-based, semi-reflective concave mirror that fades subtly across shades of deep red. The mirrored surface as a material represents a key component of Kapoor’s oeuvre, whereby both its flawlessly polished surface and the distorted reflection it creates when shaped into highly innovative form, force the viewer to re-examine their relationship to the surrounding environment.
Lisson’s newly opened 1,000 square foot East Hampton space will highlight one work per week by gallery artists – with presentations by Stanley Whitney, Carmen Herrera, Joanna Pousette-Dart, Sean Scully and Leon Polk Smith, among others – featuring both seminal, historic artworks and premiering new bodies of work.
