Hew Locke: Here’s the Thing |Thursday, September 12, 2019 to Sunday, January 19, 2020 |Kemper Museum of Contemporary Art |Here’s the Thing is the most comprehensive exhibition to date of work by British artist Hew Locke

Locke 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.
