“Beyond the Pleasure Principle,” a multi-city exhibition by Mickalene Thomas at Levy Gorvy, New York

The works in the exhibition- taking place simultaneously across the world in New York, London, Paris and Hong Kong reflect Thomas’s decades-long exploration of the Black female body as a realm of power, eroticism, agency, and inspiration, as well as a vehicle for reformulating visual idioms of modernism inherited from some of the 20th century’s most influential masters.

On view until January 9th at Levy Gorvy
