Compare this painting by Mickalene Thomas to a similar composition by Manet. In person, Thomas’s work sparkles with rhinestones and glitter. the artist and Lehmann Maupin, New York and Hong Kong


Holy shit could that have been more doubled-over in white-guilt and self-consciousness? If it was parody it would need to be toned down. Could we get a paragraph of that and then, I don't know, a bit more about the art?
I find it amusing. I don't think that one picture can change the world, but this picture is no different from all the others. I have been interested in art for a long time and I write articles with the help of this content, but I would not write about this picture so loudly. It's my opinion.
