Black Dada Reader is a collection of texts and documents that elucidates “Black Dada,” a term that acclaimed New York-based artist Adam Pendleton (born 1984) uses to define his artistic output. The Reader brings a diverse range of cultural figures into a shared conceptual space, including Hugo Ball, W.E.B. Du Bois, Stokely Carmichael, LeRoi Jones, Sun Ra, Adrian Piper, Joan Retallack, Harryette Mullen, Ron Silliman and Gertrude Stein, as well as artists from different generations such as Ad Reinhardt, Joan Jonas, William Pope.L, Thomas Hirschhorn and Stan Douglas. The Reader also includes essays on the concept of Black Dada and its historical implications from curators and critics including Adrienne Edwards (Walker Arts Center / Performa), Laura Hoptman (MoMA), Tom McDonough (Binghamton), Jenny Schlenzka (PS122) and Susan Thompson (Guggenheim).
Published by Haunch of Venison. Text by Mark Beasley, Jena Osman. Interview by Krist Gruijthuijsen.
A thread throughout Adam Pendleton's paintings and installations is an attraction to language's capacity to shape existing realities and inaugurate new ones, and to allude (references to Conceptual art, Punk and experimental poetry abound). ELTDK covers two large bodies of new work (eight new Black Dada paintings and the System of Display series) plus two essays and an interview with the artist.
