Len Lye – motion composer
23 October 2019 – 26 January 2020
Len Lye (1901–1980), a native of Christchurch, New Zealand, was one of the most important experimental filmmakers of the 1930s to 1950s. At the same time, living initially in New Zealand and Australia, from 1926 in London and from 1944 in New York City, he created a fascinating body of work embracing all artistic disciplines large parts of which – including his kinetic sculptures – have yet to be discovered. The exhibition will showcase the work of Len Lye in all its variety and breadth, paying special attention to the relationships between the different media that he set in motion.
