Event description

Description

How do images in advertising campaigns perpetuate ideas about race, gender, and class? The exhibition Hank Willis Thomas: Unbranded brings together selections from two bodies of work by renowned American artist Hank Willis Thomas (b.1976): Unbranded: Reflections in Black by Corporate America 1968-2008 and Unbranded: A Century of White Women 1915-2015. Thomas removes slogans and product names from historical and contemporary advertisements, asking us to confront the impact of images on the popular imagination.

Join exhibition curator Janet Dees, Steven and Lisa Munster Tananbaum Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art, for a lunchtime tour and discussion of the exhibition.
