Hew Locke: Here’s the Thing

September 12, 2019 - January 19, 2020

Free

The most comprehensive exhibition to date of work by British artist Hew Locke, the artist explores the languages of colonial and postcolonial power and the symbols through which different cultures assume and assert identity. Activating his awareness of colonial impact, Locke modifies historical source material and artifacts to focus attention on the United Kingdom, its monarchy, and his (then newly independent) childhood home of Guyana in South America.
