Couriers of Taste

Wessie Ling

Research output: Non-textual formExhibition


Couriers of Taste explores the fascinating relationship between international trade, global consumerism and cross-cultural influences through drawings, photographic prints, maps, installations, sculptures and masks. The house is steeped in the history of 18th-century trade, with links to a slave-run plantation in the West Indies. The exhibition also reflects on the house's past as a hub of leisure and decadence. The artworks on show take you on an exciting journey from China to Africa and to fantastical places of the imagination.
