All Welcome

Please join us Saturday 06 July, at Starkwhite Auckland for the launch of Wystan Curnow’s book Stopped Short : Writings on Len Lye, edited by Robert Leonard.

Published by Bouncy Castle and Govett-Brewster Art Gallery Stopped Short: Writings on Len Lye 1977-2017 gathers Wystan Curnow’s key writings on Len Lye. The book is introduced by Curnow, reflecting back on his earlier writings. In addition to offering a wealth of insights into Lye’s work, Stopped Short is also a study in reception, meditating on Lye’s place in world art, his place in Aotearoa New Zealand art, and the shifting relationship between them.

Both Curnow and Leonard will be in attendance.
