Lisson Gallery at TEFAF New York 2024

29 April 2024

Lisson Gallery returns to TEFAF New York to participate in the tenth edition of the fair, bringing a selection of new and historical work by a selection of the gallery’s artists, including Olga de Amaral, Carmen Herrera, Hiroshi Sugimoto, Anish Kapoor, Richard Long and Masaomi Yasunaga, among others.

A centerpiece of the presentation is Carmen Herrera’s Siete, an oil on burlap painting dating back to 1949. Created during Herrera’s transformative years in Paris (1948-1954), Siete marks a pivotal moment in the artist’s journey from figuration to abstraction. Alongside this, a Japanese paper, linen, gesso and acrylic work by the Colombian artist Olga de Amaral will be on display, ahead of the artist’s first major retrospective in Europe at Fondation Cartier pour l'art contemporain, Paris, France, this fall. Works by both Carmen Herrera and Olga de Amaral are also presented in Adriano Pedrosa’s International Art Exhibition, Stranieri Ovunque – Foreigners Everywhere, for the 60th La Biennale di Venezia until November 2024.

Coinciding with the artist’s first exhibition with Lisson Gallery, Hiroshi Sugimoto will present Opticks 250 (2018) at the gallery’s TEFAF booth. His concurrent exhibition, Optical Allusion, runs from 2 May – 2 August at 504 West 24th Street, and showcases this series of photographic prints which utilize a prism to disperse 'white' light into its seven primary colors, as well as numerous spectral variations and nuances in between.

The presentation will also feature three gouache on paper works by Anish Kapoor, in addition to an aqua-coloured mirror work entitled Sky Blue (2023). Kapoor’s mirrors challenge conventional notions of spatial perception, inviting viewers to explore alternate realities through the manipulation of reflection and color. Alongside this, Richard Long presents a new mud work, Untitled (2024), illustrating bold, gestural strokes that reflect both the artist’s hand and the unpredictable forces of nature; and Japanese artist Masaomi Yasunaga unveils a series of sculptural works, dating from 2017 to 2023, employing glaze as his primary medium and incorporating unique raw materials. In addition, following the recent solo exhibition of Rodney Graham’s work at Lisson Gallery Los Angeles, the booth will present a painting, Untitled (2022), reflecting the process of layering and superimposition to create a painterly representation akin to an all-over Cubist style.
