This catalogue was published by the Halsey Institute of Contemporary Art to accompany the 2015 exhibition Something to Take My Place, The Art of Lonnie Holley. The catalogue contains essays by Mark Sloan, Chief Curator and Director of the Halsey Institute of Contemporary Art; Leslie Umberger, Curator of Folk and Self-taught Art at the Smithsonian American Art Museum; Professor Bernard Herman (UNC Chapel Hill) on the performative aspects of Holley’s career; and an “as-told-to” autobiography by noted oral historian Theodore Rosengarten.

This publication contains reproductions of over 70 of Holley’s assemblage works and provides a comprehensive overview of Holley’s art, life, and philosophy. With photographs by John Bentham, the book was designed by award-winning graphic designer Gil Shuler, and edited by Mark Sloan.
