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, ranging from its representation of significant British sculptors from Anish Kapoor and Richard Wentworth to a younger generation that includes Angela de la Cruz, Ceal Floyer, Ryan Gander and Haroon Mirza. The show takes its name from a 2006 text work by Jonathan Monk, another of the Lisson Gallery‚Äôs 44 represented artists (16 of whom are included here), which spells out the words NOSTALGIC FOR THE FUTURE in projected green laser-light writing.
