Description: signed enamel on masonite

Notes: Executed in 1969.

Â?As an artist, David Hammons expands our definition of the term with his varied and evolving practice. He is a Â?hip junk dealer,Â? sculptor, performer, conceptual artist, environmental sculptor, magician, philosopher, social commentator, draughtsman and griot who positions himself Â?somewhere between Marcel Duchamp, Outsider art and Arte Povera.Â? Like Duchamp and the Dadaists he much admires, his art takes Â?a subordinate place in the supreme movement measured only in terms of life.Â? Indeed, HammonsÂ? work not only comments on a specifically African American version of life, it is physically composed from the material elements of this experience.Â? Â? Kellie Jones (Exh. Cat., New York, P.S.1 Contemporary Art Museum, David Hammons: Rousing the Rubble, 1991, pp. 15 Â? 16)
