artnet interviews Project& artist Hank Willis Thomas to discuss the inspiration for his exhibition “Unbranded: A Century of White Women, 1915-2015.” The exhibition highlights one advertisement per year from 1915-2015 depicting white women. “No one’s identity can be summed up by two things like skin color and gender,” Thomas says in the interview. “But what happens when you do advertising or marketing, you have to do just that: age, gender, skin color, and/or geographical location.
