The Lisson Gallery, near Edgware Road, is one of London’s longest-running and most influential contemporary art galleries. Founded in 1967 by Nicholas Logsdail, it was an early champion of artists like Richard Long, Donald Judd, Julian Opie and Anish Kapoor. Designed by British architect Tony Fretton, the two brutalist, concrete and glass galleries on Lisson Street and Bell Street are handsomely understated, contemporary spaces that continue to showcase cutting edge talent from all over the world. And the galleries are just a 15-minute walk from the Frieze art fair in Regent’s Park. §
