Redevelopment of much of Cork Street once the epicentre of London’s art scene sent many long-established galleries in search of new homes and others in a state of deep-freeze. A few years on and trendy new spaces at once more contemporary and commercial have been occupied by more contemporary and commercial galleries. Some spaces have been temporarily occupied for this year’s Frieze week, itself unable thanks to Covid-19 to occupy its huge twin tents in Regent’s Park but instead inhabiting online viewing rooms from galleries worldwide, some of whose exhibitions can be visited in person. One of the best of these is in the pop-up Lisson Gallery removed time Cork Street. It features paintings and sculptures by some of the great names in contemporary art including a pot on a plinth inscribed Coca Cola by Ai Weiwei, a psychedelic blue sphere by Anish Kapoor, a bronze gate by Tony Cragg, a box of geometric shapes by Haroon Mirza.some intriguing works by up and coming artists such as Laure Prouvost such as a half painted tent in three parts called The Hidden Paintings Grandma Improved and a willow branch with an attached glass element entitled Swallow We Will Feed The World. All very stimulating and intriguing. But perhaps because of its patchwork quilt of colour my personal favourite was Patrick Whitney’s untitled painting from 1986. In contrast with its neighbours requiring a long title or even with a mini thesis attached the Whitney is left to speak for itself.

There are two separate gallery spaces close to each other, one in Bell Street, the other in Lisson Street. The focus is entirely on contemporary artists, 62 of whom are currently supported through these London galleries and their sister locations in New York and Shanghai. I saw the exhibition by Spencer Finch at the Lisson Street location, which I enjoyed but not quite as much as I loved the gallery space itself. This is a series of rooms on the ground floor and upstairs, all painted pristine white and flooded with natural light. These galleries are off the beaten track in the under privileged part of Marylebone, but well worth finding. Admission is free.

The Gallery has two locations across the street from eacj other which generally hold very different art shows. In Bell Street, on the outside yard wall is a bold black and white graphic by the French artist Laure Provost; inside are coloured geometric paintings from the 1960's and early 1970's by Native-American artist Leon Polk Smith, born over 100 years ago in 1906. Deceptive in their apparent simplicity, Smith was influenced by the likes of Piet Mondrian and was one of the leading exponents of minimal, geometric, abstract art. Along the street in the second gallery building is a much more intense and challenging exhibition by the German artist Ceal Floyer, which explores your conception of the modern gallery and your experience of it. This is the Lisson Gallery at its best, challenging and stimulating you as the viewer.

It’s a strange set up. Having gone to what is given as the Lisson’s address in Lisson Road, a slightly depressing street in the shadows of the Marylebone flyover, there was no Leon Polk Smith to be found on either of its two floors. Instead an occasional projection onto a screen of a giant nail being hammered into a desk. I ascertained the exhibition I was actually looking for was in another building first left and a few hundred yards to the right in Bell Steeet. At last. On one floor only nine works by the elusive American master of hard edged geometrical constructivism. Mainly large wall paintings apart from what was half screen half sculpture with paint on either side. Otherwise a little bookshop but no sign of any literature about Lisson’s most celebrated exhibit Jemima Stehli.
