At Art Basel Hong Kong 2013, Lisson Gallery demonstrates its focus on developing a dialogue and a dynamic relationship with the Far East. Having participated in the Hong Kong art fair since its second year in 2009, the gallery’s early commitment to the region has been echoed by other arts organisations, notably The Art Newspaper and Art Review, both of whom will launch Asia editions at Art Basel HK this year.

Sarah Wang has recently been appointed to spearhead Lisson Gallery’s activities in the Asia Pacific region. In this role, she will be in close contact with museums and collectors in the region, as well as the artists represented by the gallery who live and work in Asia: Ai Weiwei, Lee Ufan and Tatsuo Miyajima, along with the newest addition to this roster, influential contemporary Chinese artist Liu Xiaodong.

Liu will have his first exhibition with the gallery from 25 September – 2 November 2013, following a unique residency this summer which will see him painting on-site at an eccentric pub near Lisson Gallery in London. Running concurrently with Liu’s exhibition will be a show of ambitious new LED installations by Japanese artist Tatsuo Miyajima.

Lord's Pavilion

As the cricket season draws to a close, Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC) can report a surge in popularity for guests seeking a full day of luxury hospitality at Lord’s during a Test Match in 2016. In the Home of Cricket’s most iconic venues – the Captains’ Lounge and Marylebone Suite – hospitality packages which included a hearty breakfast, sumptuous four-course lunch and luxury afternoon tea, sold out quickly for the first three days of the England v Sri Lanka and England v Pakistan Investec Test Matches. Private Boxes with the best views of the action for up to 18 guests also sold out fast for the same days. MCC revealed a sharp increase in revenue for its 2016 Sri Lanka Test Match hospitality packages compared with 2014 when the team last played England at Lord’s. Revenues for hospitality were up by nearly 30% over the same period in 2014 whilst private box sale revenues were up by a healthy 60%. Nick Kenton, MCC Head of Sales, Meetings & Events and Hospitality, said: “2016 has been a fantastic year for enjoying a day of cricket whilst experiencing the very best food, drink and hospitality that Lord’s has to offer. “This year’s sales figures show that hospitality packages at Lord’s were in huge demand and continue to be a key part of the summer sporting calendar.” Lord’s also expects high demand for its new hospitality packages, to be released this autumn for 2017 matches. These include England v South Africa from 6th to 10th July and England v West Indies from 7th to 11th September. Packages for the England v Ireland Royal London One-Day International on 7th May 2017 are also expected to sell out in record time. Details of all hospitality options at Lord’s can be found on its website
