Lisson gallery's three directors, with spaces in London, Milan and New York

Ahead of its 50th anniversary in 2017, Lisson, for so long associated with a corner of northwest London, went truly global in May 2016, inaugurating its new gallery in New York (its first in the US, and third internationally, joining the ones in London and Milan). It opened with 101-year-old Cuban artist Carmen Herrera, highlighting how artists, as well as galleries, can continue to be successful past fifty. Elsewhere Lisson artists maintain their presence across the globe – Nathalie Djurberg & Hans Berg at M21 in Shanghai, Broomberg & Chanarin at the Baltimore Museum of Art, Haroon Mirza at Pivô in São Paulo, Christian Jankowski’s curating of Manifesta 11, in Zürich – mixed reviews notwithstanding – and Rashid Rana’s appointment as artistic director of the inaugural Lahore Biennale in Pakistan in 2017 – to name but a few.
