Curator Paul Robertson introduces the James Lee Byars exhibition that will be shown at Summerhall. Byars created editions, books and unique works often on extreme scales (some public works filled entire boulevards). Byars often defined his sculptures as “book” and performances as “sculptures”.
All works are from the Heart Fine Art Archive based at Summerhall.
The exhibition is on in the Project Room, Summerhall, Edinburgh, from the 7th December 2013 until the 24th January 2014.
An error in our clip has come to our attention – James Lee Byars died in 1997 and not 1996 as we suggest.
