Zizz!” Len Lye talk with Roger Horrocks and Simon Rees

On Tuesday 23 June 2015, I covered the Len Lye talk at the Museum of City and Sea for the Govett Brewster Art Gallery. Author Roger Horrocks and Gallery director Simon Rees spoke about the impact that this hugely influential creative force had in New Zealand. The event is also a precursor to the opening of the Len Lye Centre, the first gallery in New Zealand dedicated to one artist. The event also was for the launch of  the book “Zizz! The life and art of Len Lye in his own words”, by Roger Horrocks. Here is a link to find out more about the Len Lye Centre: http://govettbrewster.com/Len-Lye/Centre

Here are some of my favourite photos from the event:
