About the Artist
About Robin Rhode
With technical skill and clever wit, Rhode's work blends elements of animation and performance to question legacies of economic disparity, racial inequality, and the capitalist system under which he was raised in South Africa. In addition to various artist-in-residence awards in Minneapolis, Boston, Berlin, London, and Cape Town, Rhode received the Ars Viva Identity award and was the winner of both the Illy Prize in Brussels and a W South Beach Commission in Miami.Read Less
