Donald Fels & collaborators, "Pineapple," 2005
Lewis & Clark's Hoffman Gallery presents What is a trade?
, an exhibition exploring the historic and contemporary effects of globalization. Painter Donald Fels was inspired by Portuguese explorer Vasco da Gama's 1498 voyage to Malabar, India, in search of a direct sea route for the spice trade. Working with the Signboard Painters of South India, Fels has created 16 large-scale paintings that explore the historic and modern-day legacy of that expedition more than 500 years later. The exhibition will run from January 21 - March 14, 2010.
