> DESCRIPTION
Please join us on March 1, 2012 for The Artist's Voice featuring Robert Pruitt in conversation with Assistant Curator, Lauren Haynes. Robert Pruitt is an artist living and working in Houston, TX. He makes drawings and sculptures about the complexity of black identity by combining contrasting signs and imagery of disparate black influences and aesthetics. He layers science fiction, hip-hop, comic books and black political and social struggles into layered portraits of his friends and community. Robert has exhibited at the Museum of Fine Arts Houston, The Studio Museum Harlem, the 2006 Whitney Biennial and various other museums and artists' spaces. He is also a founding member of the artist collective Otabenga Jones & Associates.

This program is free with museum admission. RSVPs are required on our website. Seating is limited. Studio Museum members receive priority seating, subject to availability.
