ROBERT A. PRUITT
Born 1975, Houston, Texas; lives in Houston, Texas
Robert A. Pruitt incorporates America's often unsettled race relations into the aesthetics of desire. His rereading of twentieth-century art, especially the ready-mades of Marcel Duchamp, in light of African American history and experience offers a commentary on the ongoing struggles of black Americans.
Pruitt is a member of Otabenga Jones & Associates, also in the 2006 Biennial.
