Glenn Ligon (b1960) is one of the most significant American artists of his generation.

Much of his work relates to abstract expressionism and minimalist painting, remixing formal characteristics to highlight the cultural and social histories of the time, such as the civil rights movement.

The exhibition brings together artworks and other material he references in his own work and writings, or work with which he shares certain affinities.

This publication is both a comprehensive exhibition catalogue, which fully illustrating all works in the exhibition from artists including Chris Ofili, Willem de Kooning, Jackson Pollock, Lorna Simpson, Felix Gonzalez-Torres and Jasper Johns, accompanied by newly commissioned texts by Glenn Ligon, Francesco Manacorda, Alex Farquharson, and Gregg Bordowitz; and an anthology of around 20 texts selected/excerpted by Glenn Ligon.
