James Fuentes is pleased to present a solo exhibition featuring important sculptural works by Lonnie Holley. Like parables, the works on view tell a story which seems to suggest a way of living in the world.
“I teach the children, it’s not trash, it’s not garbage, it’s not debris… It’s material. Once we see it as material our minds can digest it a lot easier… material is the whole containment of mother universe and what we use, as humans, within her.” -- Lonnie Holley, May 30, 2013.
Holley’s work is included in the collections of the Smithsonian American Museum of Art, Washington, DC; Philadelphia Museum of Art, Philadelphia, PA, New Orleans Museum of Art, New Orleans, LA; New Jersey State Museum, Trenton, NJ; Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, TX; Milwaukee Museum of Art, Milwaukee, WI; Michael C. Carlos Museum, Emory University, Atlanta, GA; High Museum of Art, Atlanta, GA; Birmingham Museum of Art, Birmingham, AL; and the American Folk Museum, New York, NY.
