Nostalgic for the Future

15 Nov 2013–11 Jan 2014

Overview

Art & Language, Tony Cragg, Angela de la Cruz, Richard Deacon, Ceal Floyer, Ryan Gander, Shirazeh Houshiary, Peter Joseph, Anish Kapoor, John Latham, Richard Long, Jason Martin, Haroon Mirza, Jonathan Monk, Julian Opie, Richard Wentworth. In advance of its 50th anniversary in 2017, the Lisson Gallery is staging a retro-futuristic survey of historical and contemporary British sculpture and installation that questions where the lines of time, influence and artistic inspiration could be drawn or where they might ultimately lead. Originally staged in São Paulo earlier this year, as Nostalgia para o futuro, this newly-configured exhibition celebrates the multi-generational programme of the gallery. The show takes its name from a 2006 text work by Jonathan Monk, another of the Lisson Gallery’s 44 represented artists (16 of whom are included here), which spells out the words NOSTALGIC FOR THE FUTURE in projected green laser-light writing.
