Robert Colescott

Robert Colescott was born in 1925 in Oakland and died in 2009 in Tucson, United States. His paintings, which are inspired by Pop Art and comic strips, reveal his deep interest in contemporary politics and history. By playing with stereotypes, his works provide a critical interpretation of American society and its contradictions, and denounce in ironic tones the omnipresent racism and sexism.

His work was included in the exhibition 'Untitled, 2020' (2020) at Punta della Dogana.
