The unique career of the African-American art star, from the era of the Watts rebellion in 1960s Los Angeles to his worldwide art prominence today. David Hammons‘ practice is a thorough critique of American society and the elite art world. It is an invitation to confront the fissures between the races with an artistic practice that seeks to move beyond the dominant culture towards a new one for the 21st century. The Melt Goes On Forever is a rich treasure of archival images and an evocative soundscape that paint the full picture of one of the most unique artists of our time.
Screening in collaboration with MACBA, Museu d’Art Contemporani de Barcelona
