Lonnie Holley 

13 May - 2 July

Edel Assanti, London

 

Lonnie Holley is among the most distinguished self-taught artists to have emerged from the American South. Aside from making music, he is best known for his elaborate found-object assemblages, fashioned from objects he salvages from scrapyards and wherever else he travels. This exhibition at Edel Assanti is his first solo show in the UK since 2004, and includes works made from objects Holley has gleaned from recent trips to the UK.
