Hank Willis Thomas uses photography, video, the web, and installations to examine how history and culture are framed, who is doing the framing, and how these factors affect our views of society. One of the most thoughtful, provocative young American artists of our time, Thomas (born 1976) has already had an impressive decade-long career that includes a 2008 monograph; a fellowship from the Tribeca Film Institute; and exhibitions and acquisitions at prestigious American, European, and African museums and galleries.
