Dom Sylvester Houédard 2 May – 16 June 2018

Widely recognised as one of the leading theorists and outstanding practitioners of concrete poetry, Dom Sylvester Houédard (1924 – 1992) is firmly rooted in Lisson’s history, with his first solo exhibition held at the gallery during its inaugural year in 1967. A practicing Benedictine priest and noted theologian, Houédard, also known by his initials “dsh” or “the Dom”, wrote extensively on new approaches to art, spirituality and philosophy, and collaborated with artists Gustav Metzger, Yoko Ono and the composer John Cage. Several of his works that often incorporate language, known as Typestracts, A4 in size and typed on an Olivetti Lettera 22, are currently on view at the Perez Art Museum Miami until 29 April 2018

The exhibition has been curated by Hana Noorali and Matt O'dell.
