DANIEL BUREN
Sep 22 - Nov 11, 2017
Daniel Buren has pursued an uncompromising site-specific style since the 1960s, choosing to make work in situ and in response to a particular location. While his ubiquitous 8.7cm wide vertical stripe, used as a ‘visual tool’ to prompt a reading of the work’s surroundings rather than just the work itself, remains a recognisable and intrinsic element of Buren’s practice, his more recent works are notable for developments in terms of architecture and form. Following his presentation of 'Hauts-Reliefs, situated works' at Lisson Gallery in 2007, Buren’s latest exhibition ‘PILE UP: High reliefs. Situated Works’ debuts a number of wall-based structures, all of which highlight the complex process behind the artist’s practice.

RODNEY GRAHAM : CENTRAL QUESTIONS OF PHILOSOPHY
Oct 3 - Nov 3, 2018
Private view Tue Oct 2 6pm - 8pm
Rodney Graham’s exhibition at Lisson Gallery London presents his first new body of lightboxes following the largest presentation of his work in this format last year at Museum Frieder Burda in Baden-Baden, Germany and Museum Voorlinden in Wassenaar, Netherlands. Since creating his first lightbox in 2007, Graham has evolved these works into a larger, more complex series that encompasses various aspects of his artistic practice, such as photography, sculpture and painting. Staged down to the finest of details – from the decoration and soft furnishings to the positioning of the central figure – the works are essentially stage sets for an accumulation of multi-layered fictions, with Graham consistently playing the starring role. Weaving together various subjects, and sprinkled with anecdotal art historical and pop culture references, the works not only comment on the mechanics of image and image-making through Graham’s intricate process but are also employed as a vehicle to examine the epistemology of perception.
