Andrew Carnduff Ritchie Lecture: “Prisoners of the Sun”

Hew Locke is a British visual artist based in London. Using a wide range of media, Locke creates complex sculptural collages and installations that explore ideas of British culture and identity in a global context. Interleaving painting, drawing, sculpture, and photography, Locke makes extensive use of found objects, including mass-produced toys, souvenirs, and consumer detritus. Hew Locke’s work has been widely exhibited and is represented in collections around the world. Locke will present work from the span of his career and discuss the international, political, and aesthetic issues raised by his work.

Established to honor the memory of Andrew Carnduff Ritchie, director of the Yale University Art Gallery from 1957 to 1971, the annual Ritchie Lectures, which are jointly sponsored by the Yale Center for British Art and the Yale University Art Gallery, bring to the University distinguished members of the international visual arts community. These lectures are free and open to the public, honoring Ritchie’s belief that the art museum serves as a gathering place for all members of the community. This lecture will be presented in the Robert L. McNeil Jr. Lecture Hall, Yale University Art Gallery, 1111 Chapel Street.
