        On March 12, 2013, Aperture Foundation, in collaboration with the School of Art, Media, and Technology at Parsons the New School for Design, was pleased to present an artist talk with Hank Willis Thomas, a photo-conceptual artist working with themes related to identity, history, and popular culture. Appropriation and juxtaposition are two of many strategies with which Thomas orchestrates his interdisciplinary practice. In this video excerpt, Thomas discusses his series Unbranded (2008) which uses advertisements lifted from the pages African-American interest magazines; Thomas subtly reworks them, removing key text, logos, and/or products. The skeletal remains betray immediately the subliminal prejudice common throughout consumer culture.

          On March 12, 2013 Aperture Foundation, in collaboration with the School of Art, Media, and Technology at Parsons the New School for Design, was pleased to present an artist talk with Hank Willis Thomas, a photo-conceptual artist working with themes related to identity, history, and popular culture. Appropriation and juxtaposition are two of many strategies with which Thomas orchestrates his interdisciplinary practice. Here Thomas discusses his series Branded (2011), which adopts a commercial vernacular to decry the commodification of African-Americans, both in contemporary sports and in the historical slave trade. A basketball player dunks into a noose, for example, or a Nike swoosh is branded onto a man’s head. Thomas’s images confront our difficult history through the universal legibility of advertising.

BUZZ-WORTHY ART TALK: Hank Willis Thomas 210 McKnight Art Center West, WSU School of Art and Design Employing the language of advertising and popular culture in his work, artist Hank Willis Thomas communicates frankly about race, class, and history. A nationally renowned artist, his two-dimensional, sculptural, and digital time-based work activates African American history to provide relevance to, and commentary on, today's experience. Currently a fellow at the W.E.B. DuBois Institute at Harvard University, Thomas is the subject of a 2008 Aperture monograph, "Pitch Blackness." To underscore the humanism and social advocacy that characterizes Gordon Parks' best work and acknowledge his participation in a tradition of African American artmaking, Thomas will talk about his work and its sources in the shared legacy--cultural as well as artistic.
