About Us

Lisson Gallery is one of the most influential and longest-running international contemporary art galleries in the world. The gallery supports and develops over 60 international artists across two exhibition spaces in London, two in New York and one in Shanghai.

'American Food' is New York-based artist Hugh Hayden's first solo exhibition in the UK. It is also the first to directly engage with Hayden's culinary installation practice, bringing together wooden picnic tables, cast-iron skillets and a multimedia stove to reflect on the history and significance of cooking and dining together in America.
