Lonnie Holley is a visionary. Renowned for his unconventional approach to art and music, his extraordinary life of hardship and survival has fueled a relentless drive and expression that knows no bounds. Working across multiple artforms, his work is held in the collections of The Met, The Smithsonian, the Art Gallery of NSW and in the United Nations. His most recent album Oh Me Oh My, released to immense critical acclaim, features collaborations with Michael Stipe, Sharon Van Etten, Bon Iver and many more. He has referred to his art and music as a ‘salve for his memories.’ For Spring Fling, join Holley and host Santilla Chingaipe at the Wheeler Centre for an evening of conversation and live performance. Prepare to be transformed by this true artistic force, who has devoted his life to furious curiosity and the practice of improvisational creativity.
