Frank Bowling | The Warmth of Other Suns: Stories of Global Displacement | The Phillips Collection

July 15, 2019

Hales Gallery is excited to announce the inclusion of Frank Bowling's, Mother's House on South America, 1968 in the exhibition The Warmth of Other Suns: Stories of Global Displacement.

 

The Warmth of Other Suns: Stories of Global Displacement presents 75 historical and contemporary artists—from the United States as well as Algeria, Bangladesh, Belgium, Brazil, Egypt, Ghana, Iraq, Lebanon, Mexico, Morocco, Syria, Turkey, UK, Vietnam, and more—whose work poses urgent questions around the experiences and perceptions of migration and the current global refugee crisis.

 

Through installations, videos, paintings, and documentary images, The Warmth of Other Suns  explores both real and imaginary geographies, reconstructing personal and collective tales of migration. Overlaying historical experiences of migration to and within the United States with the current plight of refugees around the world, the exhibition brings together a multitude of voices and exposes the universality of migration as an experience shared by many. The exhibition also focuses on how artists bear witness to both historical events and more subtle shifts in cultural landscapes.
