About Glenn Ligon

View Profile »

Glenn Ligon (American, b. 1960) is a conceptual artist presently living and working in New York City. Ligon’s work is noted for his treatment of race, sexuality and language as interconnected systems to describe a nuanced vision of contemporary social issues. Marked by a monochromatic palette and the inclusion of literary fragments, Ligon’s work plays on the intertextuality of visual art practices and art historical contexts. His screen print paintings, for which he is widely known, describe the phenomenal nature of language and the meaningless derived from even the most thoughtful text after countless repetition. Ligon works in multiple media, including painting, neon, video, photography, and digital media such as Adobe Flash for his work Annotations. He has been exhibited internationally.
