Art gallery[edit]

Lisson Gallery was founded in 1967 by Nicholas Logsdail and Fiona Hildyard. It was one of a small number of pioneering galleries in the UK, Europe and the United States to champion artists associated with Minimalism and Conceptual art.[citation needed]

In the 1980s, Logsdail exhibited many of the artists who came to be known under the term New British Sculptors, who came to maturity in the early-1980s.[citation needed]

In 2011, Lisson opened a branch gallery in Milan, Italy.[citation needed]
