Lisson Gallery to Close Its Milan Space

Lorena Muñoz-Alonso of Artnet reports that after six years, Lisson Gallery has closed its Milan space. Its final exhibition, which showcased works by American artist Spencer Finch, closed on May 19.

“This decision has been difficult but one we feel reflects the future goals of the gallery,” Lisson said in a statement. The gallery originally moved to Milan in 2011 to create an external project space while expanding its international reach.

Founded in 1967 by Nicholas Logsdail, the gallery will now focus on its two London galleries as well as its New York locations. Lisson opened its second New York space, which presents single-work exhibitions and more intimate shows, on West Twenty-Fourth Street last March.
