Lisson Gallery, founded in 1967 by Nicholas Logsdail,  was one of a small number of pioneering galleries in the UK, Europe and the United States to champion a generation of artists who were transforming the way art was made and presented, focusing on the idea or concept behind an artwork over expressive or descriptive aims. These young artists – including Sol LeWitt, Robert Mangold, Dan Graham, Donald Judd, Dan Flavin, Carl Andre, Lawrence Weiner, Art & Language, John Latham, Peter Joseph, Lee Ufan, Giulio Paolini, Daniel Buren - represented not a style but an attitude, an ethos concerning art's place in a wider intellectual, cultural and social context. 

Building on its strong history, Lisson Gallery works to support the future of its artists: the legacy of historic figures, the continually evolving practice of established artists, and the wide-ranging potential of emerging and new talents. From its beginnings, Lisson Gallery has been located in Bell Street near Lisson Grove, close to London's West End but also part of a dynamic and diverse local neighbourhood.
