David Hammons, Improvising Unpredictability

Investigation by Elvan Zabunyan

Summary

David Hammons is one of the most famous US and international artists today. For over fifty years, looking back through the history of Black emancipation, his art has explored African-American cultural and political reality using derision, provocation and spirituality. Like many avant-gardists of the 1960s, David Hammons is unremitting in his institutional critique, while also playing on the art market system. This article chooses to present the past twenty years of his work based on some of his key exhibitions in a back-and-forth between the memory of slavery and references to blues and jazz artists.
