Absurdity & Anti-Art

"Western society, and particularly that of America, is gravely ill, and a major symptom is the American treatment of the Negro. The artistic expression of this culture concentrates on themes of 'absurdity' and 'anti-art,' which provide further evidence of its ill-health." ~ Romare Bearden (1911-1988)
Romare Bearden, "Sunrise Coffee" (1970)
