Hank Willis Thomas

Hank Willis Thomas

A solo exhibition of works by Hank Willis Thomas is being presented by Jack Shainman Gallery at both of its New York City galleries from September 8—October 29. On view, Thomas will introduce a series of new sculptures exploring gestures that display ideas like collective and individual identity, perseverance, and unity, including a five-feet-tall polished bronze figure titled Embrace, which anticipates a major public work that Thomas will reveal in Boston on Martin Luther King Jr. Day in 2023. Additionally, Thomas will introduce new creations inspired by Roy Lichtenstein and Ellsworth Kelly. Employing a combination of glass mirrors and flash photography, the retroreflective works place the viewer in the role of the photographer, only allowing them to see the true images that lie beneath the vinyl surfaces (portraits of the Freedom Riders and other civil rights activists) when activated by flash.
