A Reader

Published by The Museum of Modern Art.
Edited by Adam Pendleton with Alec Mapes-Frances. Introduction by Stuart Comer. Text by Adrienne Edwards, Mario Gooden, Danielle A. Jackson, Adam Pendleton, Lynne Tillman.

Adam Pendleton draws on visual culture and historical archives to explore the ways in which context influences meaning. Referencing a broad range of artistic and cultural currents—including Dada, Minimalism and Black Power—Pendleton reconfigures words, forms and images to provoke critical questioning.
Published to accompany Pendleton's installation at the Museum of Modern Art, this reader serves as a primer and handbook to the exhibition and features a number of photocopied textual and visual sources, many of which directly relate to the concept, content and programming of the exhibition. The project questions the notion of the museum as repository and addresses the influence that mass movements, including those of the last decade such as Black Lives Matter and Occupy, could have on the exhibition as form. Drawing on the work of figures as disparate as Glenn Gould, Michael Hardt and Ruby Sales, Who Is Queen? seeks to explore the nexus of abstraction and politics.
Adam Pendleton (born 1984) lives and works in New York. His visually distinctive and conceptually rigorous paintings, drawings and other works deploy linguistic, political and historical material in unlikely forms and configurations.

Adam Pendleton: As Heavy as SculptureAdam Pendleton: As Heavy as Sculpture

Published by D.A.P..

A new artist's book by Adam Pendleton (born 1984), As Heavy as Sculpture follows Pendleton's 2021 installation of the same title, exhibited at the New Museum in New York. The book collects, repeats and processes over 80 source collages, incorporating drawings, sketches, writing and marks, often in combination with images.
Much of the language in the collages is drawn from the protests against police brutality that swept the US in 2020: Pendleton has transcribed slogans sprayed on walls and windows, combining them with his own improvised language as well as photographs of art objects and artifacts (sculptures, masks and figures). The work points to the poetic pressure that uprisings place on language itself, compressing it in some cases into the barest of forms: simple sequences like “ACAB” or “1312,” further reducible to the elements “A, B, C,” “1, 2, 3.”
In parallel with these operations of decomposition and recomposition, the collages in As Heavy as Sculpture have been duplicated, laid out across 30 sheets and folded into book signatures, creating new displacements and cuts. This folding is in effect a chance operation, a procedure of recombination and translation, resulting in arrangements of images not planned out in advance.

David Adjaye Adam PendletonDavid Adjaye Adam Pendleton

Published by Pace Publishing.
Interview by Adam Pendleton, David Adjaye.

This new volume, designed in collaboration with American artist Adam Pendleton (born 1984) and Ghanaian British artist and architect David Adjaye (born 1966), explores the blurred boundary between art and architecture. Featuring new silkscreen canvases by Pendleton and marble sculptures by Adjaye, this publication brings the artists and their works into conversation. The two collaborators discuss their respective practices and their process of working together on the creation of the exhibition at Pace, as well as notions of history, language, abstraction and space—whether architectonic or on canvas—and how these themes involve and reveal themselves in their work. Images of finished artworks are interspersed with photographs of their production, giving a behind-the-scenes look at process, from the quarrying, cutting and polishing of marble for Adjaye’s works to the meeting of ink and canvas in Pendleton’s studio.

Revisiting the Black Dada Reader

Published by DABA/Koenig Books.
Introduction by George E. Lewis.

In 2011, artist Adam Pendleton (born 1984) assembled Black Dada Reader, a compendium of texts, documents and positions that elucidated a practice and ethos of "Black Dada." Resembling a school course reader, the book was a spiral-bound series of photocopies and collages, originally intended only for personal reference, and eventually distributed informally to friends and colleagues. The contents—an unlikely mix of Hugo Ball, W.E.B. Du Bois, Adrian Piper, Gertrude Stein, Sun Ra, Stokely Carmichael, Gilles Deleuze—formed a kind of experimental canon, realized through what Pendleton calls "radical juxtaposition." In 2017, Koenig Books published the Reader in a hardcover edition, with newly commissioned essays and additional writings by the artist. A decade later, Pendleton has composed another reader, building upon the constellation of writers, artists, filmmakers, philosophers and critics that emerged in the first volume.
Contributors include: Thomas Hirschhorn, Ishmael Houston-Jones, Lorraine O'Grady and Joan Retallack. Source texts by Toni Cade Bambara, Gilles Deleuze, Julius Eastman, Henri Lefebvre, Clarice Lispector, Achille Mbembe, Charles Mingus, Piet Mondrian, Juliana Spahr, Malcolm X and others.

Adam Pendleton: Our IdeasAdam Pendleton: Our Ideas

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

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.

Adam Pendleton: ELTDKAdam Pendleton: ELTDK

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.
