Glenn Ligon, Detail, 2014. SOLD OUT
Made exclusively for Camden Arts Centre to coincide with the forthcoming exhibition Glenn Ligon: Call and Response at Camden Arts Centre 10 October 2014 - 11 January 2015. For his exhibition at Camden Arts Centre, Ligon presents a new series of large paintings based on the 1966 seminal taped-speech work, Come Out, by Minimalist composer Steve Reich. Come Out is drawn from the testimony of six black youths arrested for committing a murder during the Harlem Race Riot of 1964. Known as the ‘Harlem Six’, the case galvanised civil rights activists for a generation, bringing to attention police brutality against black citizens. Echoing Reich’s overlapping repetition of words and phrases, Ligon’s silkscreen paintings overlay the words to create slowly shifting and rhythmic effects.
