This Do in Remembrance of Me

Artist: Robert A. Pruitt
installation | Wood communion table, two iPod Minis, mixer, hair, wine, and various altar offerings | 2005

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.
