Art In America

Hank Willis Thomas

at Jack Shainman,
513 West 20th Street, New York, NY 10011

In the front room of Shainman's new gallery are some photographs and sculptures by Hank Willis Thomas, including the well-known series "Zero Hour," hologramlike prints of a white-painted man in profile turning black over the course of six images. But the back room contains the real meat of the show, Willis's new five-channel video installation Question Bridge: Black Males (a collaboration with several other artist-filmmakers). Question Bridge features woven together interviews-on topics ranging from race and violence to love and sexuality-with over 150 black men, among them performance artist Kalup Linzy and actor Jesse Williams (who is also an executive producer).
