Robinson contributes a universal, miniature activism "kit" that is actively staged in the window gallery as well as several peculiar ceramic trophies which seem to celebrate
less-than-momentous events or accomplishments. Derived from his investigation of Jean Marat and Erich Fromm's meditation "On Disobedience," the mixed media sculpture presents placards that are blank but nonetheless convey urgency and indignant passions. The protestors themselves are formed from impressions of clay clenched in the artist's fist, effectively embodying a collective, largely suppressed discontent.
Andrew Cornell Robinson's work includes ceramics, mixed media sculpture and work on paper that often bridges eccentric, socio-political content with craft and assemblage materials. He is the principle of The arts crafts research Studio; a multi-disciplinary atelier where he works on both independent and collaborative projects with curators, designers and artisans. Robinson received his BFA in 1991 from the Maryland Institute College of Art and his MFA in 1994 from the School of Visual Arts in New York City. He has received awards from Cannes for his digital media work and fellowships from The Edward Albee Foundation in 2010. He lives and works in Brooklyn, NY, and teaches art and design at Parsons The New School for Design.
