Hank Willis Thomas: Solo exhibition at the Portland Museum of Art

Hank Willis Thomas: All Things Being Equal, the first major retrospective of the acclaimed American artist’s work will be on view at the Portland Art Museum from 12 October to 12 January 2020. The exhibition features more than 90 works including “early photographic series, recent sculptures based on archival photographs taken during historic 20th-century events, quilts constructed from commercial sports jerseys and prison uniforms, video installations, interactive two-dimensional and time-based works, and public art projects”. In addition, supported by the museum, Willis Thomas has created new and monumental flag-based work addressing lives lost to gun violence in the United States last year. The retrospective will travel to Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art and the Cincinnati Art Museum in 2020.
