DALLAS, TX.- Dallas Contemporary
announces an exhibition featuring New York artist ROB PRUITT. The exhibition made specifically for Dallas Contemporary will be Pruitt’s first major institutional exhibition in the United States and his largest exhibition to date.
Dallas Contemporary Executive Director, Peter Doroshenko said, “It's an honour to be presenting the first institutional exhibition of Rob Pruitt's work in the USA. Pruitt has been a seminal figure in the New York art scene since the late 1980s and to have a focused exhibition of forty new panda paintings and large-scale water sculptures at the Dallas Contemporary is quite timely and important.”
Pruitt’s interests lie in creating environments where participants feel free to improvise and experiment outside of their comfort zones. In his signature style, Pruitt’s installation of glitter panda paintings has never before been shown and is the largest number of panda paintings to be shown together.
Doroshenko adds, “Rob Pruitt is a master at creating emotional energy with his art work....he works on creating various layers of information within each work and it is up to the viewer to decide how much she/he wants to peel away. Pruitt's works have a full spectrum of visual and intellectual punch.”
Rob Pruitt was recently featured at Two x Two, the 13th annual benefit dinner and art auction that jointly benefits amfAR and the Dallas Museum of Art hosted by Cindy & Howard Rachofsky. His work has been recently included in various museum group exhibitions in New York, London and Venice.
