Adam Pendleton: Our Ideas

Edited by Alec Mapes-Frances, Stephen Squibb. Text by Adam Pendleton, Suzanne Hudson, Alec Mapes-Frances. Contributions by Yvonne Rainer, Adrienne Edwards.

Adam Pendleton: Our Ideas

The work of New York–based artist Adam Pendleton (born 1984) is animated by what he calls “Black Dada,” a critical articulation of blackness, abstraction and the avant-garde. Drawing from an archive of language and images, Pendleton makes collages, paintings, videos and other objects that seek to reconfigure received histories of culture.

This catalog, accompanying Pendleton’s 2018 solo exhibition at Pace London, brings together new work from his various ongoing series: the Black Dada paintings and drawings, System of Display, Untitled (A Victim of American Democracy), paintings and wall works, a video portrait of Yvonne Rainer and a monumental group of 68 works on Mylar, in which certain recurring features—photographs relating to modernism in Africa, ceramics and African masks, fragments from the pages of books and Pendleton’s own drawings—are recombined with cut-up phrases and marks, weaving contemporary and historical references into a single body of work. The book includes a text by the artist, essays from Suzanne Hudson and Alec Mapes-Frances, and a conversation between Pendleton and Rainer, moderated by Adrienne Edwards.


"Untitled (A Victim of American Democracy" (2018) is reproduced from 'Adam Pendleton: Our Ideas.'

Black Dada, Malcolm X and the refusal of representation in 'Adam Pendleton: Our Ideas'

Black Dada, Malcolm X and the refusal of representation in 'Adam Pendleton: Our Ideas'

“Untitled” (2017) is reproduced from Our Ideas, launching tonight with a reading and conversation at Mast Books. Exquisitely made by Pace Gallery, this volume collects work from several series, including Black Dada and System of Display, Untitled (A Victim of American Democracy), as well as a video portrait of Yvonne Rainer. Works form the Untitled series revisit a section from Malcolm X’s 1964 speech, The Ballot or the Bullet, which reads, more presciently than ever, “I’m one of the 22 million black victims of the Democrats. One of the 22 million black victims of the Republicans and one of the 22 million black victims of Americanism. And when I speak, I don’t speak as a Democrat or a Republican. I speak as a victim of America’s so-called democracy. You and I have never seen democracy—all we’ve seen is hypocrisy.” continue to blog
