Documenting Lye’s friendships and collaborations during the early years of his career, with a survey of works connected to Lye’s stay on the Spanish Island of Mallorca in 1930.

For several months following the completion of his first film, Tusalava, Lye lived with the famed literary couple Robert Graves and Laura Riding in their new island home, experimenting with various ideas for his next film and producing book cover designs for the couple’s Seizin Press – a wonderful study in modern design and a rarely considered part of Lye’s practice. It was a brief but productive episode for Lye with echoes of his childhood in coastal New Zealand.
