Len Lye: Swinging the Lambeth Walk

"Swinging the Lambeth Walk (1939), a four–minute, hand–painted Dufaycolor film 'with a colour accompaniment by Len Lye', matches visual motifs to musical instruments: diagonals introduce piano phrases, circles express drum beats, wavy horizontals represent guitars licks, vertical lines map base parts, etc. Primary red, blue and deep green colour fields are rendered frameless by upwardly cascading kite shapes, luminous tapered stripes, and batik–like patterns."

Te Maori exhibition was a milestone in the Māori cultural renaissance of the 1970s onwards

"The Te Maori exhibition was a milestone in the Māori cultural renaissance of the 1970s onwards. Featuring traditional Māori artwork, the exhibition at first toured the United States in 1984 and was shown in New York, St Louis and Chicago. It was a great success and returned to tour New Zealand, again to applause, and a swelling of Māori pride. This photograph shows exhibition staff at the Auckland City Art Gallery just before its opening there."
(New Zealand Herald, 7 September 1984)
