All Things Being Equal…, a new exhibition of works by Hank Willis Thomas opens at the Goodman Gallery in Cape Town, September 2nd and marks the artist’s first solo show in South Africa. Bringing together recent work, the exhibit explores legacies of slavery and colonialism, segregation and apartheid. Previous projects by Thomas include his Unbranded series, currently featured in the Greater New York exhibition on view at MoMA PS1, which re-appropriates advertising targeted at African Americans and his B®anded Series which can currently be seen at the Brooklyn Museum and considers representations of African-American men in popular media. Hank Willis Thomas’ monograph Pitch Blackness, which includes several bodies of work, was published by Aperture in 2008.
Hank Willis Thomas is the co-chair of this year’s first-ever benefit party, hosted by SNAP!, Aperture Young Patrons Program, which will follow the annual 2010 Benefit & Auction dinner.
