Adam Pendleton (Phaidon Contemporary Artists Series) (Paperback)
The first encompassing publication on the work of Adam Pendleton, one of the most formally inventive and conceptually rigorous American artists working today
Adam Pendleton's original and powerful body of work has been described as the embodiment of a new era. His multifaceted projects, which include painting, collage, film, and publishing, re-contextualize historical and theoretical positions on abstraction, blackness, and the avant-garde. Working predominantly in black-and-white, Pendleton often creates 'total works' that envelop viewers and push the limits of contemporary discourse.
A rising star in the international art scene, Pendleton is currently represented by PACE in New York, London, and Hong Kong; Shane Campbell in Chicago; David Kordansky in Los Angeles; Max Hetzler in Berlin; Pedro Cera in Lisbon; and Eva Presenhuber in Zurich.
