Hew Locke: The Ghostly Tourists | The Chrysler Museum of Art

Hales is excited to announce The Chrysler Museum of Art have acquired Hew Locke's Ghost, 2015 and will be on view alongside The Tourists2015. 


The film and sculpture work together to show the range of Locke’s practice and his ongoing creation of boats and ships, which represent the artist’s British and Guyanese identities. Ghost and The Tourists stand as icons of the former British Empire and the country’s use of naval power in colonializing Caribbean countries such as Guyana.
