"Rousing the Rubble celebrates the energetic work of American artist David Hammons, who until now has ducked the attention of art critics, traditional galleries and museums. Preferring to 'do things in the street', Hammons, a recent recipient of a MacArthur Foundation Fellowship, places himself as an artist between Arte Povera and Marcel Duchamp. He creates his art from urban refuse and the detritus of African American life -- chicken wings, Night Train bottles, clippings of African American hair. Hammons' witty and elegant sculptures, body prints and installations are the product of his deeply felt views on racism and cultural stereotypes."
