The first encompassing publication on the work of the American neo-conceptual artist Adam Pendleton

Adam Pendleton is a Virginia-born, New Yorkbased artist known for his multifaceted, language-based practice, which includes film, collage, painting, performance, and publishing. His re-contextualization of history often results in fresh interpretations of the present, where new and old narratives and meanings co-exist, as one of his main projects, Black Dada (2008-ongoing) testifies. Working predominantly in black-and-white, and often in collaboration with other artists, Pendleton's work constantly explores issues related to mechanisms of representation and notions of race.
