Hank Willis Thomas : “Everybody used to say, oh, I got it all from Matisse, and I said, ‘Not really.’”
Ben Brown Fine Arts is proud to present Hank Willis Thomas’s "Everybody used to say, oh, I got it all from Matisse, and I said, ‘Not really.'" This is the artist’s fourth solo exhibition with Ben Brown Fine Arts and first exhibition at the Palm Beach gallery. The exhibition brings together a selection of recent works by the artist from his most celebrated series, including sports jersey textile works, lenticular text works, retroreflective prints, and a neon. Hank Willis Thomas is a multi-disciplinary, conceptual artist whose work explores notions of identity, race, politics, popular culture, sports, and history. His practice emanates from a bright vision of promise for the future, attained by both examining the past and creating a fresh visual repository to engage with these conceptions.
