Lisson Gallery to open New York space in Chelsea

The Lisson Gallery will open a new 8,500 square foot gallery in New York's Chelsea district in the first half of next year, adding to their two galleries in London and one in Milan

The Chelsea space's programme will draw from the 46 artists and estates the gallery represents, many of whom are not currently represented in the US, and will be directed by Alex Logsdail, joined by two US directors, Jeannie Freilich and Angela Brazda, who have been based at Lisson Gallery’s existing offices and viewing spaces on Eldridge Street, New York, for the past two years.

The New York gallery will be housed in a newly constructed building, spanning the city block from 24th to 23rd Street, designed collaboratively by architects Christian Wassmann and Markus Dochantschi, and will be constructed around the foundations of the High Line, New York's 1.45 miles of elevated park.
