Hank Willis Thomas: Collaboration with MASS design group on High Line in New York; artist conversation with Deborah Willis at the Barnes Foundation

The Writing on the Wall, a collaborative installation by Hank Willis Thomas, Baz Dreisinger, and MASS Design Group, is being shown on the High Line from 1 to 10 November. The exhibition is comprised of essays, poems, letters, stories, diagrams and notes written by individuals in prisons around the world. The project uses artistic expression to bring attention to justice movements affiliated with these prisoners and sheds light on the various causes associated with their incarceration. In addition, on November 16 Thomas will take part in a conversation with his mother, the artist and scholar Deborah Willis, at the Barnes Foundation in Philadelphia.
