Description

The singular, category-defying work of African-American artist David Hammons is explored in this rich and striking portrait. Born in Springfield, Illinois, Hammons grew to international acclaim and earned accolades for his inventive, genre-defying work with found objects - basketball hoops, the hair trimmings off a barbershop floor, snowballs - which he used to craft an essential, striking commentary on race in America. Always a rule-breaker, Hammons is chronicled in THE MELT GOES ON FOREVER through archival footage, animation, and interviews featuring artists, curators, and critics who recount the work of an artist who constantly defies the establishment and remains subversive at every turn.
