Lisson Gallery Shanghai will open with an exhibition entitled 'Love is Metaphysical Gravity'. Taking its title from a quote by the American architect and theorist Buckminster Fuller, the exhibition ties together works that go beyond the physical realm of gravity, into the transcendental, mystical and metaphysical.The exhibition will include works by Marina Abramović, Richard Long, Shirazeh Houshiary and Tatsuo Miyajima, whose most recent body of work, Innumerable Life/Buddha (2018), is showing at Lisson Gallery's 10th Avenue space in New York until 16 February.
Love is Metaphysical Gravity 22 March – 18 May 2019
Lisson Gallery Shanghai will be housed within the former warehouse known as the ‘Amber Building’ on Huqiu Road. This historic building, dating back to the 1930s, was previously used during the Republican period by the Central Bank of China. The road, historically referred to as ‘Museum Road’ due to its location, today sits alongside some of the city’s major museums and cultural institutions, including the Rockbund Art Museum, Fosun Foundation and Christie’s.
