ALLORA & CALZADILLA : FOREIGN IN A DOMESTIC SENSE
Sep 22 - Nov 11, 2017
Allora & Calzadilla’s ‘Foreign in a Domestic Sense’ features new sculpture, performance, photo and video works. The exhibition continues the artists’ ongoing investigation into how the nature of language, the politics of speech and the magnitude of gestures intersect with uncanny vibrancy in a wide range of materials. From performative utterances to mark-making traces, Allora & Calzadilla take the inherently social, political and cultural nature of semiotic circuitry as the conceptual base from which to develop their artistic practice, while simultaneously playing close attention to the singular and corporeal dimensions of vocal expression.

May 11 - Jun 23, 2018 FINAL WEEK
Richard Long has been in the vanguard of Conceptual and Land art in Britain since he created A Line Made by Walking in 1967 while still a student. This photograph of the path left by his feet in the grass, a fixed line of movement, established a precedent that art could be a journey. Through this medium of walking, time and distance became new subjects for his work. He has since expanded his walks to wilderness regions all over the world, from mountains to deserts, shorelines and rivers. Following his acclaimed exhibition ‘Earth Sky’ at Houghton Hall in Norfolk, England last year, Long’s show at Lisson Gallery will feature a new wall work in mud created specifically for the exhibition and text works that document journeys made over the past few years.

ANGELA DE LA CRUZ : BARE
Jul 4 - Aug 18, 2018
Private view Tue Jul 3 6pm - 8pm
A new body of work makes up Angela de la Cruz’s exhibition at Lisson Gallery, her first solo presentation with the gallery in London since 2011. Titled ‘Bare’, the exhibition explores the vulnerability we are subjected to in the contemporary world – at a universal and individual level – and tries to offer a solution to the underlying uncertainty that represents our era. As a result of recent political events, de la Cruz transforms the gallery space into an installation that emits the sense of a deserted, closed market; a post-apocalyptic scene evoking unease and apprehension.
