Hank Willis Thomas on group show at Duke University

Hank Willis Thomas’ work features on the latest group exhibition, People Get Ready: Building a Contemporary Collection, hosted by the Nasher Museum at Duke University in North Carolina (1 September – 6 January). Since opening in 2005, the Nasher Museum has been dedicated to building a groundbreaking collection of contemporary art. The museum’s collecting strategy emphasises works by diverse artists who have been historically underrepresented, or even excluded, by mainstream arts institutions, and maintains a particular focus on artists of African descent. Drawing primarily on the collection built over the last 12 years, People Get Ready includes works dating from 1970 to 2018 that engage issues ranging from cultural identity to social justice and environmentalism.
