The Sea is History: Art and Black Atlantic Cultures. A Symposium around the work of Frank Bowling | Haus Der Kunst | 20 October

September 9, 2017

Hales Gallery is delighted to announce 'The Sea is History: Art and Black Atlantic Cultures', a Symposium around the work of Frank Bowling to be held at the Haus der Kunst in Munich on 20th October 2017, 11am - 8pm. Speakers include: Sonia Boyce, J. Michael Dash, Peter Doig, Ellen Gallagher, Isaac Julien, Courtney J. Martin, Steve McQueen, Mark Nash, David Scott and Allison Thompson.

 

The goal of this symposium is to examine the intersection of the artistic, theoretical, literary, and cultural dimensions of Bowling’s practice. Over the course of the symposium, it is hoped that the invited participants, ranging from literary scholars, cultural theorists, and art historians to artists, will bring into sharp focus the ways in which the Black Atlantic continues to inform the production of art today by a new generation of artists, in conversation with Frank Bowling: Mappa Mundi (the current comprehensive survey of Bowling's work, on view at the museum until January 7th 2018).
