Glenn Ligon: Work, Work, Work, Work, Work, Work
Poem by Gregg Bordowitz.
A slipcased overview of Ligonís recent studio practice, including his painterly elaborations on a James Baldwin essay
For four decades, New YorkĖbased artist Glenn Ligon (born 1960) has explored Americaís literature and fraught racial history through works in a few signature mediums such as text-based paintings and neon. This volume, through studio documentation and a new text by fellow artist and New Yorker Gregg Bordowitz, focuses on various aspects of Ligonís art-making. Glenn Ligon features newer works by the artist, such as a monumental new painting from Ligonís ongoing Stranger in the Village series, begun in 1997. In the series, Ligon renders excerpts from novelist James Baldwinís 1953 essay of the same name, which describes the writerís experiences as an African American in a small town in Switzerland. Measuring 45 feet long, this triptych will mark the first time Ligon has used the entire text from Baldwinís essay in a single work.
