Hew Locke’s work engages with the visual symbolism and display of power, exploring with both fascination and critique the ways in which collective identity is imagined and represented. The Kingdom of the Blind, a carnivalesque frieze of monumental figures enacting victorious moments in battle, extends this engagement and draws on Locke’s characteristically wide range of cultural and vernacular references.
This discussion invites panelists to respond to The Kingdom of the Blind and its themes of global power and cultural identity. Speakers include independent curator and critic Sacha Craddock, writer and curator Maxa Zoller and writer and art historian Kobena Mercer.
