Description - Glenn Ligon: Encounters and Collisions by Glenn Ligon

Glenn Ligon (b. 1960) is one of the most significant American artists of his generation. Much of his work relates to abstract cxpressionism and minimalist painting, remixing formal characteristics to highlight the cultural and social histories of the time, such as the civil rights movement. This new book brings together artworks and other material Ligon references or work with which he shares certain affinities. The book illustrates works by Ligon and other artists - including Chris Ofili, Willem de Kooning, Jackson Pollock, Lorna Simpson, Felix Gonzalez-Torres, and Jasper Johns - accompanied by texts by Ligon, Francesco Manacorda, Alex Farquharson, and Gregg Bordowitz, and an anthology of some 20 texts selected/excerpted by Ligon.
