Len Lye: Motion Sketch
Len Lye: Motion Sketch includes a selection of paintings, drawings, and photograms, never before seen in the United States. These will be presented alongside ephemera, drawings, and written texts annotated with doodles, book covers, and film strip samples that demonstrate Lye’s filmmaking techniques.
In The Drawing Center’s Lab gallery, an extensive film program will be presented on video, including such landmark films as Tusalava, 1929; A Colour Box, 1935; and Free Radicals, 1957/1979.
The Drawing Center, New York
Len Lye: Motion Sketch is curated by Gregory Burke, Executive Director/CEO of both the Mendel Art Gallery and Remai Art Gallery of Saskatchewan and Co-Curator of the Montreal Biennale, 2014; and Tyler Cann, Associate Curator of Contemporary Art at the Columbus Museum of Art.
This exhibition is presented by The Drawing Center in collaboration with the Govett-Brewster Art Gallery and draws primarily from the Len Lye Foundation Collection.
