A colossal survey of Pendleton’s classic works, together with newly created color silkscreens.

New York-based artist Adam Pendleton uses letters, words, drips, splashes, sprays and collected images as primary materials in his interdisciplinary practice, which spans painting, drawing, photography, film and more. Working across mediums, he blurs the boundaries between seeing and reading, between representation and abstraction. His oeuvre is informed by an ongoing interrogation of blackness, abstraction and the avant-garde, resulting in longform ambitious projects such as Black Dada.

This catalog, published on the occasion of the artist’s first comprehensive European solo exhibition, includes a selection of new works by Pendleton in which he steps outside his usual black-and-white palette and uses color for the first time. The book is brimming with illuminating texts, including essays penned by curator Marianne Dobner and the novelist Lynne Tillman, a poem by Simone White and an interview with the artist by critic Lauren O'Neill-Butler.
