The Brooklyn Museum recently announced that it will expand the exhibition “Mickalene Thomas: Origin of the Universe,” which is on view now at the Santa Monica Museum of Art. As Brooklyn put it: “Seventy-five of the ninety featured works [will be] added for the Brooklyn presentation.” The Brooklyn presentation opens on September 28.
Thomas was the lead guest on Episode No. 30 of The Modern Art Notes Podcast. We discussed her art, her interest in art history and how her relationship with her mother has fed her work.
