Mickalene Thomas: A Moment’s Pleasure

Posted by Fabio 25 November 2019

Mickalene Thomas: A Moment’s Pleasure, a large-scale, site-specific installation that will transform nearly every aspect of the Baltimore Museum of Art’s two-floor East Lobby. Envisioned as a living room for Baltimore, the installation will see Thomas re-fit the space with new wallpapers, furniture, and other interior design elements. Within this environment, Thomas will present a selection of her paintings, prints, and collages, while exterior artworks will signal the shift in the aesthetic and communal experience. The installation marks the inaugural presentation of the Robert E. Meyerhoff and Rheda Becker Biennial Commission, which was established last autumn to provide contemporary artists with a platform within the BMA to realize ambitious new projects and to engage with the community through one of the most accessible areas of the museum. On view until May 2021, Mickalene Thomas: A Moment’s Pleasure is the most expansive commission undertaken by both the artist and the institution.
