Hew Locke announced as New Contemporaries 2021 Selector

Hales is pleased to announce that Hew Lock will be a Selector for the New Contemporaries 2021, alongside internationally-renowned Tai Shani and Michelle Williams Gamaker.


Hew Locke is a sculptor whose fusing of historic sources with current political or cultural concerns, and the merging of influences from The Caribbean and London, lead to richly textured, vibrant pieces that stand on a crossroad of histories, cultures and media. His work is on the collections of The Tate Gallery, The Metropolitan Museum in New York, The British Museum and the Government Art Collection, amongst others. His public artworks include ‘The Jurors’ memorial at Runnymede marking 800 years of Magna Carta. His recent solo exhibition at Ikon Gallery in Birmingham ‘Here’s the Thing’ is now touring in the USA.
