The first comprehensive monograph on Mickalene Thomas, a key figure in 21st-century contemporary art

Over the past two decades, Mickalene Thomas''s critically acclaimed and extensive body of work has spanned painting, collage, photography, video, and the immersive installations that have become her signature.
