      EVENT DETAILS
      Artist Dinner Series: Hew Locke

      Join us Friday, September 13, at 7:30 p.m. to celebrate the opening of Hew Locke: Here’s the Thing with British artist Hew Locke, our honored guest for Kemper Museum’s third Twenty-Fifth Anniversary Artist Dinner following his public talk. Exploring the languages of colonial and post-colonial power, how different cultures fashion their identities through visual symbols of authority, and how these representations are altered by the passage of time is a focus of Locke’s work. Born in Edinburgh, UK, Locke spent his formative years –spanning the 1960s and 70s– in Guyana, before returning to the UK, providing opportunity for a creative and complex menu that parallels the artist’s oeuvre. Price: $125 per person *price includes drinks, dinner, and gratuity  Please let us know any dietary restrictions by emailing dschreiner@kemperart.org by September 6. Building on the history of unique culinary events hosted by Kemper Museum's Café Sebastienne under the direction of Executive Chef Rick Mullins, join us for a special series of Twenty-Fifth Anniversary Artist Dinners exploring the art and artists of our time with a remarkable artist-inspired menu each night.
