Hew Locke | A Global Table | Frans Hals Museum

October 27, 2017

Hales Gallery is proud to announce the inclusion of Hew Locke's Golden Horde #5 in the Frans Hals Museum exhibition A Global Table.  

 

This unique exhibition featuring old and new art showcases the magnificent food still lifes of the Golden Age. It offers an alternative reading of these works as documents from an eventful history. What does the food we see tell us about the Netherlands’ colonial and trade relations in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries? Curatorial Fellow Abigail Winograd (Israel, 1983) initiates dialogues between some thirty exquisite still lifes and works by contemporary artists who are interested in world trade and the effects of colonialism.
