Lisson Gallery at TEFAF Maastricht 2023
2 March 2023
Lisson Gallery is delighted to return to TEFAF Maastricht for the fair’s 2023 edition with a range of works by its artists, including paintings and sculptures by Ai Weiwei, Antonio Calderara, Tony Cragg, Carmen Herrera, Anish Kapoor, Li Ran, Joanna Pousette-Dart, Laure Prouvost and Wael Shawky, among others.
Following the artist’s major dual-site exhibition in Venice and ahead of a solo presentation in New York this Autumn, Lisson is pleased to present recent painting and sculpture by Anish Kapoor that exemplify the breadth of his enquiries into presence and absence, and of voids and protrusions. Untitled (2020) invites viewers into its monumental curves formed from pink onyx, while a 2015 oil on canvas work subtly investigates our perceptions of depth.
Alongside a selection of early figurative and landscape paintings by Antonio Calderara, Lisson’s booth highlights a new two-panel China clay work by Richard Long, as well as three new paintings by Li Ran, depicting theatrically-lit individual figures and a group of rats in the artist’s signature muted palette. Three paintings by Peter Joseph, featuring loose brushwork, natural tones and patches of exposed canvas, are shown on the occasion of the exhibition ‘Peter Joseph: The Window Paintings’, on view at Lisson Gallery in Shanghai until 15 April.
Ahead of a solo exhibition by Ai Weiwei at Lisson Gallery in London this November, the artist presents Broadway Boogie Woogie in Combination of Lego (2020) – a recent work from his ongoing series of wall-based works made with LEGO bricks. Among the other sculptural works on display are a pair of glaze vessels by Masaomi Yasunaga, and Tony Cragg’s towering Elliptical Column (2021) in highly-reflective stainless steel.
Elsewhere on the booth, Laure Prouvost continues the flirtatious absurdism of a series of smaller oil paintings portraying body parts with the large-scale In Deepth and Looking at you looking at me (both 2023), while Joanna Pousette-Dart's 2023 sweeping curved panel painting Untitled evokes the constantly shifting light and form of landscape.
TEFAF Maastricht runs from 9 – 19 March.
