The CCA Wattis Institute for Contemporary Arts, an exhibition space and research institute in San Francisco, dedicates year-long seasons of discussions and public events to a single artist. In 2016?17, the American artist David Hammons (born 1943) was "on our mind." The book begins with the previously unpublished transcript of a rare artist talk given by Hammons in 1994 at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, on the occasion of his exhibition there. It then introduces a series of photographs the artist sent to the Wattis Institute in 2017, interspersed with texts by the Bay Area poet Tongo Eisen-Martin and the writer and critic Fred Moten. Much like Hammons? work, this publication raises more questions than answers. Rather than functioning as a comprehensive introduction to the artist, 'David Hammons Is on Our Mind' offers visual and textual elements that relate obliquely to the enigmatic artist?s oeuvre.00Exhibition: CCA Wattis Institute, San Francisco, USA (09.09.2016-20.07.2017).
