Mickalene Thomas’s ‘A Moment’s Pleasure’

Thomas's installation of living room and home imagery

Mickalene Thomas’s ‘A Moment’s Pleasure,’ more than most exhibits, has taken on more meaning in the coronavirus era. Not only is its name a painful tease to the few months the exhibit’s short-lived run, it intended to convert the lobby of The Baltimore Museum of Art into a sort of living room space. I believe the introduction of domestic space to a public museum was quite serendipitous, given that almost everyone is so much more familiar with their domestic spaces now. The exhibit plans to reopen soon, and I like to wonder whether visitors will feel more familiarity this time around.
