He is perhaps best known as half of the art team Pruitt-Early, which disbanded after their show addressing the marketing of African American pop culture forced their exile from the art world, and his love for panda bears. He is also the host and founder of 2009 and 2010 Rob Pruitt Art Awards at the Guggenheim Museum.

Description

Retail value: $4,500
Starting bid: $1,800


Rob Pruitt is known for his appropriation of commercial objects as part of a biting, but delightfully humorous critique. Ice (The Party's Over) is one of his most melancholy works. Pruitt's ice bags are literally melted, things unused and past their prime. In their deflated form, they serve as poignant, serene reminders of time's passing, and reminders of the need for a more serious - but still ironic - turn in art practice.
