A Century of White Women For Freedoms

The event is free and seating is very limited. Doors open at 6:30pm. The talk also will be simulcast in an overflow space on a first come seating basis. 

Through photographs, sculptures, videos, and public art installations, artist Hank Willis Thomas asks tough questions and offers sharp insights about the constructions of race, gender, and class in American popular culture. Join us on September 15, as he explains the thinking and motivation behind his photographic series Unbranded: A Century of White Women, 1915–2015 and places the project in the context of his other work—including his current artist-driven political action committee For Freedoms.

Hank Willis Thomas: Unbranded a Century of White Women, 1915-2015, is on view September 3-December 11, 2016. 

This talk is supported by UNCG’s Falk Visiting Artist Program and University Performing Arts Series; Fabric of Freedom, an arts program of the National Folk Festival; and the National Humanities Alliance Foundation supported by the Whiting Foundation.

This talk is a partner program included in the 2016 17DAYS Greensboro Festival sponsored by ArtsGreensboro.
