  • Artist Biography

    David Hammons

    American • 1943

    David Hammons eschews the spotlight and rebels against the conventions of the art world. Hammons’s diverse body of work, spanning conceptual, performance, and installation art, is so laden with spell-binding metaphor that they have become symbols for movements both in the art world as well as in the public domain. 

    Hammons doesn't work in any consistent medium or using any formal or academic theory—he famously has said, "I can't stand art actually." Still, with his Duchamp-ian readymades re-envisioned for a contemporary political context, Hammons remains one of contemporary art's most watched artists. Untitleda basketball hoop with dangling candelabra, achieved $8 million at Phillips in 2013, the world auction record for the artist.
