Hank Willis Thomas

Who Taught You To Love?


For American conceptual artist Hank Willis Thomas, art is a means to visualise a message. His expansive practice investigates the intersections of race, identity, collective consciousness and consumerism.

Launched as part of a wider collaboration between Avant Arte and artist-run collective For Freedoms, the edition reprises Thomas’ billboard design for the organisation’s 2020 Awakening Campaign. Find out more about the Avant Arte × For Freedoms collaboration.
