Lisson Gallery to open in Chelsea, New York City

Lisson Gallery is set to open a new 8,500 square foot gallery space in the Chelsea neighbourhood of New York City. This marks an expansion of the gallery’s longstanding presence in New York City, and joins three other permanent exhibition spaces in London and Milan.

The Chelsea gallery will be led and directed by Alex Logsdail, joined by two US directors Jeannie Freilich and Angela Brazda. The new space will present a programme of shows from its 46 artists, many of whom are not represented in the US. Housed in a newly constructed building located under the High Line, the gallery will span the city block from 24th to 23rd street. Polished concrete floors will complement the natural light from the two large skylights in the main exhibition space. The south section will consist of a private project space, offices, and art handling areas, while the north façade will be cast in exposed concrete with the High Line forming a canopy above the entrance at 504 West 24th Street.
