Join Aperture West Prize winner Hank Willis Thomas for an Artist’s Talk at B&H in New York City, followed by a book signing of his Aperture monograph Pitch Blackness. Hank employs the language of popular culture and advertising in his work to speak explicitly about race, class and history in a way that is accessible and easy to decode. During his lecture at the B&H Event Space, he will discuss his work as an exploration of the affects of past visual culture as it intersects with our current world view – often creating correlations between African American historical challenges and the present. Come discover how Hank creates images that bring history forward with relevance to our experience of race, class and gender as conditioned by popular culture.
