Do you recognize any of these photos below? If you were born before and around the early 8's than these photos will bring you way back.
Last summer I took a trip to the Museum of Modern Art and found the "Unbranded" by Hank Willis Thomas (the son of DeborahWillis, check out my post about Deborah Willis's Art!) exhibit as one of the most striking collections in the entire museum. I know they have loads of timeless art but I was caught off guard with this one.
This exhibit will force you to think hard about how advertising and corporate america reinforces generalizations about culture gender and race.
