After several years of toil we launched the new collection of research concerning Len Lye this past Thursday at Scorpio books in Christchurch. It was a fitting conclusion to a year of activity for us in Lye’s hometown. Two exhibitions took place there through the latter half of 2018, Stopped Short by Wonder at Christchurch Art Gallery and Pretty Good for the 21st Century at the School of Fine Arts and Canterbury University.
Partnering with Canterbury University Press on this book recognised more than the city having a biographical connection to Lye but the strong connections between the University’s School of Engineering and the Len Lye Foundation.
You can read the press release for the book here.
Otherwise, the book will be available via Amazon in early 2018.
