The Hugo Boss Prize 2020: Deana Lawson, Centropy

Tomorrow, May 7, marks the opening of “The Hugo Boss Prize 2020: Deana Lawson, Centropy.” Last October, Lawson became the first photographer to receive the biennial prize.

Lawson creates images that are rooted in a moment from the tangible world, but ultimately exist in the shimmering in-between space of dreams, memories, and spiritual communion, where the everyday is transfigured into the uncanny and the magnificent.

Her photographs and films result from collaborations with strangers whom the artist encounters by chance or deliberately seeks out. These individuals are often depicted within richly textured domestic settings in which the details of decor, lighting, and pose are precisely choreographed.

#WorkoftheWeek: For his “Unbranded” series, artist Hank Willis Thomas appropriated commercial advertisements from historical print magazines and redacted the text found on these pages.

By removing all text including product names and the overlaid slogans and marketing copy, Thomas illuminates the visual ways in which the corporate marketplace targeted a growing Black middle class in the years following the civil rights movement.

"Off the Record" at the Guggenheim

“The show is a reminder that documentation and record-keeping happens at many levels, including at the site of the museum itself.” —Ashley James, Associate Curator, Contemporary Art

Records—historical, documentary, state, and other—are generally seen as the collectively accepted communicators of “truth.” The thirteen contemporary artists in our current exhibition "Off the Record" challenge that assumption.

Learning Through Art 50th Anniversary: Meet the Students

“When I make art, it makes me feel so happy.” —Zahara, P.S. 86 Bronx

#WorkoftheWeek: Tomashi Jackson’s practice has been defined by an investment in the physical and conceptual overlap of United States history—in particular that of the civil rights era—with legacies of modernist painting.

For “Ecology of Fear (Gillum for Governor of Florida) (Freedom Riders bus bombed by KKK),” Jackson has expanded this geographical and chronological focus, integrating an archival image of President Lyndon B. Johnson signing the Voting Rights Act with political records, including Greek ballot papers and 2018 US campaign materials, and paint.

"To me, it is more interesting to take images that already exist (some of which I have taken myself but most of which I find) and re-present them, re-make them, extract them from the cycle of images, and intervene with them in my own terms through installation (and studio photography)." —Sara Cwynar, as told to BOMB Magazine

In her “Encyclopedia Grid” series, Sara Cwynar places dozens of images in relationship to one another in a loose grid format, drawing forth patterns or tropes of representation. In “Bananas” (pictured), she traces the portrayal of a fruit that has served as a symbol for the global south, its commerce, and its exploitation through colonialism and imperialism.
