Inside the Halsey Institute of Contemporary Art
The Halsey Institute of Contemporary Art is organizing a residency, exhibition, video, and monograph featuring the work of American vernacular artist Lonnie Holley. Something to Take My Place: The Art of Lonnie Holleywill be on view at the Halsey Institute from August 21 to October 10, 2015, and will feature a selection of the artist’s assemblage works from 1984 to 2015.
Lonnie Holley incorporates natural and man-made objects already imbued with cultural and artistic associations, into narrative sculptures that commemorate places, people, and events. Holley believes that art and life are in constant need of renewal so he chooses to work with objects that have been discarded or appear worn and gives them a new life.
