All Things Being Equal

Hank Willis Thomas at Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art in Bentonville, Arkansas, USA through 13 July 2020. The exhibition is the first comprehensive mid-career survey of the conceptual artist’s career, spanning 20 years of his work. Combining familiar sports and advertising images with histories of art and politics, Thomas examines popular culture and how art can raise awareness in the ongoing struggle for social justice and civil rights. His artistic practice centers on analyzing and dissecting the images and concepts that comprise American culture, with particular attention to race as a construct, gender, and cultural identity. Through his work, Thomas asks his audience to become active participants in acknowledging, reconsidering, and dismantling old ways of thinking that obstruct opportunity, liberty, and inclusion for all people.

Four of a Kind

Billy Renkl at Foley Gallery in New York, New York, USA. The four artists in the exhibition address the natural world and our relationship to it. The paintings, drawings, and collages ignite a vivid exploration of explosive color with expressionistic style calling us to engage with the outside world in a time when we are often kept from it. Billy Renkl’s deft cutting and collaging bring together historical ideals of nature with contemporary hindsight. MORE


Twin Cities Collage Collective

Minneapolis-Saint Paul, Minnesota, USA. The Twin Cities Collage Collective, like most everything else, has put all of their activities on hold. Collective co-founder, Ben DiNino, writes “It's sad since we were just coming into our own. We were looking forward to World Collage Day and the exhibition of all the work we have been receiving.” Instead of an in-person exhibition, they put together an online exhibit that you can view on their website. Once people are able to start meeting in groups again, the collective is optimistic that they will still go forward with a number of collage based classes through the local library system that were meant to start in April. The group has been connecting via social media to check in with each other and discuss future plans. Image by by Nathan Stromberg. MORE

Assumptions Of Consensus Reality

Boston, Massachusetts, USA. Phyllis Famiglietti uses a variety of materials in her work. Old books and magazines, instruction manuals, comics, found elements from the street and flea markets. She regroups and reframes these elements into unique and compelling relationships. What Famiglietti likes most about working in collage is that she gets to “play with appearances and assumptions of consensus reality.” MORE
