On a walk and talk with Len Lye Curator Paul Brobbel, we'll explore the current exhibition The Absolute Truth of the Happiness Acid.

This show is the Govett Brewster's most comprehensive survey of Len Lye’s films, presented alongside an extensive survey of studio tools and materials behind the making of the films.

Produced in collaboration with Berlin-based exhibition designers Kooperative für Darstellungspolitik, The Absolute Truth of the Happiness Acid explores new methods of presenting Lye’s films in the gallery environment, with extensive use of archival materials to expose Lye’s handmade approach to filmmaking.
