PAT LAY
MYTH, MEMORY & ANDROID DREAMS

A survey of Pat Lay’s work from the 1970s to the present, “Myth, Memory &Android Dreams” is characterized by an inclusivity that embraces a range of cultures across spatial and temporal boundaries. As part of that breadth, the artist has always worked in a variety of media, drawn to the experimental and the multidisciplinary. This exhibition will trace the trajectory of her projects and the evolution of her thinking, with the emphasis on her recent production.
