Glenn Ligon
Some Changes

Glenn Ligon: Some Changes surveys the breadth of the New York based artist’s oeuvre over the last seventeen years. Ligon is at the forefront of a generation of artists who came to prominence in the late eighties on the strength of conceptually based paintings and photo-text work that investigates the social, linguistic and political construction of race, gender and sexuality. Incorporating sources as diverse as James Baldwin’s texts, photographic scrapbooks, and Richard Pryor’s stand-up comic routines, Ligon’s art is a sustained meditation on issues of quotation, the presence of the past in the present, and the representation of the self in relation to culture and history.
