"A Global Table" at the Frans Hals Museum and De Hallen Haarlem, Haarlem, Netherlands.
On view September 23, 2017 through January 7, 2018.
The exhibition "A Global Table," curated by Curatorial Fellow Abigail Winograd (Israël, 1983), takes place at both locations of the Frans Hals Museum | De Hallen Haarlem. Point of departure for this transhistorical exhibition in which old and new art is presented side by side, is the 17th century still life collection of the museum. "A Global Table" represents an alternative interpretation of these works. The still life is treated as a historic document. Which colonial and trade relationships do the food products depicted on the still lifes represent? What do they say about the growing overseas power of the Republic and what were the social and cultural consequences of this Dutch urge for expansion? Winograd combines resplendent foodstill lifes of the Golden Age with art works of contemporary artists who have an interest in globalization and the practical effects this phenomenon has on daily life.
