One of London's pioneering contemporary galleries, Lisson was set up in 1967 by art dealer Nicholas Logsdail. The gallery's stated aim across the decades has been to analyse art's place in the 'wider intellectual, cultural and social context', and as such has always represented artists who challenge the status quo. First there were the new breed of ethos-led '60s minimalist painters such as Sol LeWitt and Robert Mangold. Then came the genre-busting New British Sculptors of the '80s with the likes of Anish Kapoor, Julian Opie and the poetic conceptualists of the early '90s (Rodney Graham, Douglas Gordon, Tatsuo Miyajima and Francis Alÿs). The Lisson's reputation for thought-provoking shows has never wanedm, with a new generation of bright young art things currently in their care – look out for work by Gerard Byrne, Santiago Sierra, Fernando Ortega and Christian Jankowski who use their work to question the cultural value of globalisation. A superb platform for international names both big and small.
