Hank Willis Thomas talk at Art Funders Forum and group exhibition at Peabody Essex Museum, Massachusetts

Hank Willis Thomas will be speaking at the Arts Funders Forum (AFF), an annual event taking place during Art Basel Miami Beach. The AFF is a platform which brings together philanthropists, artists, funders and cultural influencers to develop new models for creating high-impact investment in the cultural sector, helping to shape the future of philanthropy. In addition, work by Thomas is being shown at the Peabody Essex Museum in Salem as part of the group exhibition, Jacob Lawrence: The American Struggle. The exhibition (18 January – 26 April 2020) pairs a group of paintings by the late African American artist who depicted pivotal moments in the American Revolution and the early decades of the republic, with contemporary artists whose work resonates with Lawrence’s themes.
