“Most artists talk about working, and want to work ‘out-side the box.’ Most never do,” Lennon continues. “Lee did, because he understood that working in the world was working outside the constraints and artificiality of the institutions and the market. He understood and demonstrated what it means to be an independent artist, to act on your own.” Littlefield created his pop-up art before it became a popular cliché, Lennon adds. “You know, when it was ‘guerrilla’ art. And in doing that, he brought pleasure to those of us paying attention to the world we live in.” The exhibit includes five suspended sculptures and several photographs.
