Lisson Gallery participates in the first 'OVR: Miami Beach'

30 November 2020

Lisson Gallery’s presentation for this year’s first ‘OVR: Miami Beach’, on view from 2– 6 December, features a range of works that either utilise a painterly ‘system’ or a pre-configured process to create paintings or painting-like pieces. Beginning with an early work by Hélio Oiticica that breaks with the strictures of modernism, Rodney Graham cuts, pastes and reinvents the same language 70 years later. Far from exhausting the possibilities of the two-dimensional pictorial space, painters such as Mary Corse and Bernard Piffaretti demand audience participation and concentration, while Carmen Herrera and Jason Martin move the painted space away from the flat surface, towards sculpture. Allora & Calzadilla and Cory Arcangel apply diverse materials and technologies to expand the definitions and horizons of painting, while the cracked window pane of Ryan Gander and Stanley Whitney’s moveable colour feast suggest an ever-changing frame, which could contain multitudes and be enriched by the alternate universes of painterly rulebreakers Joyce Pensato and Laure Prouvost.

Lisson's OVR presentation is complemented by the online exhibition 'Painting Protocols', which delves deeper into the painterly influences of these various artists' practices.
