The spring begins with the first major retrospective exhibition of Caribbean British artist and poet . Spanning six decades, the exhibition will survey his contribution to British art, literature and art education, centred on his exploration of Trinidadian folklore and mythology through painting and poetry. The show includes paintings, drawings and woodcuts, with selected small sculptures and sketchbooks. It includes Lyons' poetry via text and sound, and importantly, explores the links between his visual and literary practices. An archival element considers Lyons' long career in art education and the arts ecosystem in Manchester, West Yorkshire, and nationally. The exhibition and accompanying illustrated catalogue bring greater visibility and recognition at a timely moment in his long career.
