  • Something to Take My Place: The Art of Lonnie Holley

    This video accompanies the exhibition Something to Take My Place: The Art of Lonnie Holley. The Halsey Institute commissioned acclaimed videographer John David Reynolds to create a mini- documentary about Lonnie Holley. In the video, the artist talks about his creative process, his artistic inspirations, and his hopes for the future.

    Produced and Directed by John Reynolds
    Executive Producer: Mark Sloan

    The Halsey Institute has organized a multi-faceted showcase of American artist and musician Lonnie Holley. This comprehensive project features a exhibition, video, live concert, and monographic catalogue. This is Holley’s first solo museum show since 1994 and will feature a selection of his assemblage works since the early 1990s, with an emphasis on recent work. Holley incorporates natural and man-made objects imbued with cultural and artistic associations into narrative sculptures commemorating places, people, and events.

    He creates spontaneous and improvisational work by editing and repurposing materials and objects. He presents concepts poetically by utilizing memory and storytelling to catalyze thought. The power of Holley’s work derives from the multiple associations brought forth by new juxtapositions and innovative combinations of familiar objects. These collisions excite the faculties of memory and meaning in the viewer, as his works trace the artist’s raw and honest attempt to turn a thought into a thing.
