Conceptual artist Hank Willis Thomas combines popular images with politics and references to history, like his “Cotton Bowl” photograph of a football player on a gridiron head to head with a man in overalls in a cotton field. This exhibition, from the Portland Art Museum, is a mid-career survey featuring photography, sculpture, mixed media, paintings video and collaborative works. Created especially for the exhibition: “14,719,” six 28-foot-long blue banners stitched with stars representing a person shot and killed in the United States in 2018.
