Glenn Ligon: Encounters and Collisions 

 

This book originated from a major group exhibtion curated by Glenn Ligon. It features forty-five artists who he refers to in his art and in his writings, or who have been of significance to him more generally, including Willem de Kooning, Andy Warhol, Adrian Piper, David Hammons, Felix Gonzalez-Torres, Lorna Simposon, Steve McQueen and Zoe Leonard. This publication also features an anthology of fifteen literary and critical texts selected by Glenn Ligon. A personal art history of sorts, set in a wider cultural and historical context, this project offers a wealth of new insights into the background that informs Ligon's practice.
