A unique presence in underground culture for the past twenty years, Graham Lambkin makes a rare solo appearance to celebrate his solo exhibition at AVA (May 13). Following his initial rise to prominence first through The Shadow Ring, Lambkin embarked on a series of striking and highly original solo releases, a critically acclaimed trilogy with experimental tape music artist Jason Lescalleet and a collaboration with legendary table-top guitarist Keith Rowe. With support from Devin DiSanto, who uses everyday objects to explore presence in incidental sound and labor-oriented approaches to performance.
