Palm BeachAdam Pendleton: Paper
This solo exhibition, which runs concurrently with Art Basel Miami Beach and New Wave Art WKND, spotlights editioned works on paper that feature the painted and drawn marks, language, and collected images that are central to the artist’s wide-ranging practice.
Featuring combinations of photocopied pages from books, African masks, and handwritten text and gestural marks, the works in the Palm Beach presentation reflect Pendleton’s unique approach to abstraction and his engagement with history.
The presentation coincides with Pendleton’s ongoing exhibition Who Is Queen? at the Museum of Modern Art in New York, a monumental installation exploring Blackness, abstraction, and the avant-garde.
Adam Pendleton uses historical and aesthetic content from texts and visual culture to critically examine the resonance of ideas from varied cultural perspectives, including social resistance movements and Dada, Minimalism, and Conceptualism.
