We need to talk about Hank

Condé Nast House & Garden - - ZEITGEIST -

Pro­lific Us-based artist Hank Wil­lis Thomas will be pre­sent­ing a solo ex­hi­bi­tion in col­lab­o­ra­tion with Good­man Gallery – and it’s a big deal, not only be­cause he just re­ceived a Guggen­heim Fel­low­ship. Through var­i­ous medi­ums, in­clud­ing sculp­ture and pho­tog­ra­phy, Hank un­packs is­sues of race, his­tory, iden­tity and class while ques­tion­ing the re­la­tion­ship be­tween the vic­tims and their vi­o­la­tors – themes as rel­e­vant to present-day Amer­ica as they are in South Africa.
