DAVID HAMMONS: ROUSING THE RUBBLE. Steve Cannon et al. Institute for Contemporary Art, P.S. 1 Museum, Long Island City, 1990. Published 1991. Published in association with MIT Press, Cambridge. 96 pp. with 88 ills. (5 col.). 29 x 24 cm. LC 91-61578 ISBN 0262031841 In English.
Accompanies a retrospective survey of the innovative oeuvre of African American artist Hammons (b. 1943), who employs such unconventional materials as discarded wine bottles, hair clippings, basketball poles, snow and coal in diverse assemblage sculptures, performance pieces and installations that address social and aesthetic prejudices. Illustrating representative works produced by Hammons beginning with his greased body prints of the early 1970s, the catalogue features a lengthy prose poem conveying the cultural context of the artist's work and two essays which discuss his career, his use of the urban ghetto as a source of inspiration and materials, and the "ideology of dirt" central to his iconoclastic approach.
