Lonnie Holley

Artist and improviser Lonnie Holley performs an intimate, improvisatory performance at Artists Space Books & Talks on October 6, 2015 organized by ISSUE Project Room.

For four decades, Lonnie Holley has devoted his life to the practice of improvisational creativity. His art and music, born out of struggle, hardship, but perhaps more importantly, out of furious curiosity and biological necessity, has manifested itself in drawing, painting, sculpture, photography, and more recently performance and recordings. The layers of sound are the result of years of evolving experimentation; improvised on the spot, Holley's sounds and lyrics morph with every event, concert, and recording.
