SPRING 2018 EXHIBITIONS on view 1/25/18 - 5/13/18:

"MUSE: Mickalene Thomas Photographs" and "tête-á-tête"

Mickalene Thomas, known for her large-scale, multi-textured, and rhinestone-encrusted paintings of domestic interiors and portraits, has also identified the photographic image as a defining touchstone for her practice. The exhibition, "Muse: Mickalene Thomas Photographs," is organized by Aperture Foundation, New York.

The idea of communities of inspiration will be further carried out via "tête-à-tête," an installation curated by Mickalene Thomas of work from photographers who have inspired her.

"Establishing Justice: Selections from the Permanent Collection"

"Establishing Justice" examines the criminal justice system by exploring jails, courtrooms, and police departments and the defendants and prisoners who populate these spaces. Works by Sandow Birk, Danny Lyon, Richard Ross, June Wayne, and Carrie Mae Weems will be on view.
