A GLOBAL TABLE - Frans Hals Museum | De Hallen Haarlem Fellowship Transhistorical Curating

23.09.2017 - 07.01.2018

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 food still lifes of the Golden Age with art works of contemporary artists who have an interest in globalisation and the practical effects this phenomenon has on daily life.
