Brooklyn Talks: Hank Willis Thomas

Thursday, January 10, 2019

7–9 pm

Iris and B. Gerald Cantor Auditorium, 3rd Floor

Dr. Kellie Jones, award-winning art historian, author, and curator, talks with artist Hank Willis Thomas about his new book, All Things Being Equal (Aperture 2018), which surveys Thomas's prolific and extraordinary interdisciplinary career. In the ten years since his first publication, Pitch Blackness (Aperture 2008), Thomas has become known for his ability to critically dissect the flow of images in American visual culture, especially with attention to race, gender, and cultural identity. Presented in partnership with Aperture and in connection with our exhibition Something to Say: Brooklyn Hi-Art! Machine, Deborah Kass, Kameelah Janan Rasheed, and Hank Willis Thomas.
