New Limited-Edition Print by Hank Willis Thomas
After Identity, What?, 2011 © Hank Willis Thomas
Aperture is pleased to present a new limited-edition photograph by Hank Willis Thomas. After Identity, What? is part of the artist’s 1969 series. MoMA PS1 invited Hank Willis Thomas and other artists to respond to the year 1969, a period marked with revolution and socio-political tumult. The artists made work utilizing images from magazines of the period and juxtaposed them with text derived from the same publications. The resulting pieces demonstrate the concerns and social values of the era and reflect a historical perspective only the passage of time can provide.
