Event Details


Join Len Lye curator Paul Brobbel to find out more about the exhibition Len Lye: The Edge of the Sea - aquatic landscapes and imagery in the work of Len Lye

Get the story behind the gallery's latest Len Lye exhibition The Edge of the Sea with this interesting and insightful guided tour of the show and stories of Lye's life surrounding it.

The exhibition includes familiar works such as Tusalava, Fountain and Grass together with lesser-known works such as the recently reconstructed sculpture Albatross and several examples from Lye’s suite of myth paintings including Sun, Land and Sea and Ancestor. Previously unseen archival materials and examples of Lye’s extensive drawing practice complete the exhibition and present a natural counterpoint to our image of Lye and his work.
