Lisa Dent Gallery was committed to providing a forum for emerging, international artists who transcended the limitations of both medium and nationality. The gallery collaborated with artists that were well educated in the demands of their particular media, and motivated by a deep, personal interest in their subject matter. While our artists displayed a type of early career energy, they also demonstrated a long-term and informed commitment to art making. Their training and experiences showed through in theoretically rigorous, often conceptually motivated, work. Above all the gallery sought excellence, both in vision and in execution and was honored to develop the careers of those artists involved in our programming.

Exhibited artists included Makoto Aida, Jon Brumit, Thomas Chang, Matthew Cusick, Ala Ebtekar, Kianga Ford, Marcia Kure, Candice Lin, Jennifer Locke, Bradley McCallum & Jacqueline Tarry, Vanessa Marsh, Flo McGarrell, Jason Middlebrook, Kambui Olujimi, Ryan Pierce, Shane Aslan Selzer, Maiko Sugano, Tim Sullivan, Basil Twist, Robin Ward, and Hank Willis Thomas.
