Head to Lisson Gallery’s Bell Street spaces and bear witness to an ambitious new series of works by artist Julian Opie, including the UK premiere of a groundbreaking new VR experience. Known for his distinctive distilling of imagery from everyday life into pared-back symbols – people, animals or buildings – Opie has been incorporating movement and light into art since the 1980s. “Everything you see is a trick of the light”, says Opie. “This exhibition presents an expansion of Opie’s practice, with the artist delving in to the different ways images are received in the world. Using portable headsets, visitors are invited to journey through a new dimension, encompassing multiple realms spanning from intimate interactions to multi-layered experiences. OP.VR@LISSON/London will be the first time Lisson presents a VR experience in its 50 year history – not one to be missed!
