Lonnie Holley at 193

Institute 193 was honored to host a musical performance by the artist Lonnie Holley during the opening weekend of his exhibition Stepping In the Footprint.

Holley’s extraordinary music emerges from the same creative impulse that informs his visual art. Improvisational and deeply emotional, no two performances are the same, but the layered sound of Holley’s music is the result of many years of experimentation and evolution.

A month before his show at Institute 193, Holley performed at the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York City. Click here for a short video of that performance. Holley released his debut album Just Before Music in 2012 with the Grammy-winning label Dust-to-Digital.
