Best Retrospective Art Exhibits: Hank Willis Thomas: All Things Being Equal…

Hank Willis Thomas: All Things Being Equal... at the Cincinnati Art Museum

Faced with all the challenges of staying open and keeping visitors safe in 2020, the Cincinnati Art Museum still managed to launch several important exhibitions, including a groundbreaking Frank Duveneck retrospective and a memorable address to racial understanding, Hank Willis Thomas: All Things Being Equal…, which featured two decades’ worth of Thomas’ work exploring how “the visual languages of popular culture, advertising and media shape society and individual perspective, structuring and trading upon notions of race and gender.” Due to its popularity, Frank Duveneck: American Master has been extended through the beginning of May. cincinnatiartmuseum.org.
