Pitch Blackness

Posted in Art by akacocolopez on February 4, 2009

Looking forward to this exhibit:

Jack Shainman Galleryis pleased to announce the opening of Pitch Blackness, Hank Willis Thomas’s second solo exhibition at the gallery.  Thomas traces black history through visual culture in an attempt to dissect, reinterpret, and re-imagine iconic moments from the “black past” and to investigate the complexity of race in America in the 21st century.

Reminds me of the first graphic novel I’ve bought (well excluding the mangas I was addicted to @ 13 that weren’t even in English), “Still I Rise”.

With the looks of the cover, seems like the authors were waiting for just the right moment to release the book.
