Lisson Gallery is pleased to announce a group show of fourteen artists, curated by Raimundas Malašauskas.

The title of each work is an anagram of the title of the exhibition, ‘Fusiform Gyrus’, which is the name of a particular area of the brain: the lobe that neuroscientists attribute with facial recognition facilities. The works exhibited have more in common than being anagrams of this group exhibition of sculpture. Their properties belong to many different orders of life, including their own selves, yet they also move through those orders. Certain rooms open up like a double solo show; how can we trust one identity?
In this ‘group exhibition of sculpture’, ‘group’ stands for the totality of the senses and ‘sculpture’ for plasticity at large. This sensual plasticity applies to time, subjectivity, the body, and also to the face. The idea of a face that exceeds its portrait and disappears into its moving parts is key. Each work is a cognitive and spatial version of the exhibition itself (and vice versa). After this exhibition is over, the titles of the works may mutate or change in their significance.
About the curator
Raimundas Malašauskas, born in Vilnius, is a curator and writer. From 1995 to 2006 he worked at the Contemporary Art Centre in Vilnius, where he produced the first two seasons of the weekly television show ‘CAC TV’, an experimental merger of commercial television and contemporary art that ran under the slogan ‘Every program is a pilot. Every program is the final episode.’ He curated ‘Black Market Worlds’, the IX Baltic Triennial, at CAC Vilnius in 2005.
From 2007 to 2008 Malašauskas was a visiting curator at California College of the Arts, San Francisco, and, until 2010, a curator-at-large of Artists Space, New York. In 2007 he co-wrote the libretto Gellar Door, an opera by Loris Gréaud produced in Paris. He has curated the exhibitions ‘Sculpture of the Space Age’, David Roberts Art Foundation, London (2009); ‘Into the Belly of a Dove’, Museo Rufino Tamayo, Mexico City (2010); and ‘Repetition Island’, Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris (2010).
Recently he worked as one of the agents of dOCUMENTA 13. He is currently curating ‘oO’, an exhibition for the Lithuanian and Cypriot pavilions at the 55th Venice Biennale.

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
