Who? Bruce Lacey, curated by David Alan Mellor and Jeremy Deller
What? In the 1950s and 60s Bruce Lacey was at the forefront of London’s pioneering and experimental arts scene. Distinguished by his eccentricity, his work ranged from mechanical sculptures to cabaret acts and performances, and included making props and working with a host of legendary artists and actors, such as Spike Milligan and The Beatles. During the 1970s, Lacey was a visiting professor in numerous universities and art colleges, also taking children’s theatre shows on tour across Britain with his family. Lacey is still at large, creating art installations, directing events, and dabbling in electronic music production. This exhibition draws together aspects of Lacey’s work traversing all periods of his life, celebrating a career of brilliance, colour and creativity.
