In the 1980s, Logsdail exhibited many of the artists who came to be known under the term New British Sculptors, who came to maturity in the early-1980s.
In the 1990s, a diverse group demonstrated a poetic conceptualism of image and language while other artists including Tony Oursler used the media of video and sound to create heightened visions of the social constructs of their age. A new generation has emerged in the first decade of 21st century who explore the structures of representation and cultural value from global perspectives. At the beginning of the second decade of the 21st century the gallery has begun to work with another new generation of artists including Cory Arcangel, Haroon Mirza and Ryan Gander.
In 2011, Lisson opened a branch gallery in Milan, Italy.
