Creative polymath, Lonnie Holley shares thoughts on his music and visual art-making included in "When the Curtain Never Comes Down" and performs unpublished songs at an intimate concert in the museum's gallery.
Since 1979, Lonnie Holley has devoted his life to the practice of improvisational creativity. His art and music has manifested itself in drawing, painting, sculpture, photography, performance and sound. Holley's music and lyrics are improvised on the spot and morph and evolve with every event, concert, and recording. In 2012, Holley released the album Just Before Music on the label Dust-to-Digital. In early 2014, Holley recorded again with Richard Swift, acclaimed musician and producer at his studio, National Freedom, in Cottage Grove, Oregon.
Duncan Cooper, Deputy Editor at The Fader, will interview Mr. Holley at 7 pm prior to the performance.
The exhibition publication "When The Curtain Never Comes Down" will be launched by the same occasion. Artist Lonnie Holley, Valérie Rousseau, curator of the exhibition, and other catalog essay writers will be present to sign copies pre and post-concert. Doors open at 6:45 pm.
