Perspectives 154: Robert Pruitt documents the first solo museum exhibition of this Houston-based artist who takes a tongue-in-cheek look at issues of race and identity in today’s society. His work, which ranges from drawings on paper to sculpture, video, and installations, draws upon the vernacular of black culture to examine the historical and contemporary struggles of black Americans. The exhibition includes drawings and sculptures over the last four years, as well as new work debuting in the Contemporary Arts Museum’s presentation. The artist received his MFA degree from the University of Texas at Austin. The catalogue includes an interview with the artist by Valerie Cassel Oliver and documentation of the artist’s career.
