Upcoming Project

Mickalene Thomas Exhibition

Artist: Mickalene Thomas

Location: Vivian and David Campbell Centre for Contemporary Art - AGO

Partner: AGO

Partners in Art is thrilled to once again be partnering with the Art Gallery of Ontario (AGO) on the forthcoming exhibition by artist Mickalene Thomas. The exhibition will include a range of media including silkscreen, video and site-specific installations.

Mickalene Thomas (lives and works in Brooklyn, NY) makes paintings, collages, photography, video, and installations that draw on art history and popular culture to create a contemporary vision of female sexuality, beauty, and power. Blurring the distinction between object and subject, concrete and abstract, real and imaginary, Thomas constructs complex portraits, landscapes, and interiors in order to examine how identity, gender, and sense-of-self are informed by the ways women (and “feminine” spaces) are represented in art and popular culture.
