Glenn Ligon: Encounters and Collisions
- 3 April — 14 June 2015
Glenn Ligon is one of the most significant American artists of his generation. For this exhibition he has brought together the work of 45 major artists – many of them referred to in his art or writing – from the late 1940s to the present day, including work by Jackson Pollock, Willem de Kooning, Franz Kline, Cy Twombly, Jasper Johns, Andy Warhol and Bruce Nauman. Encounters and Collisions also includes key examples of Ligon’s own work. Like Ligon, their work often deals with the shifting experience of American identity, examining loaded questions around language, power, race, gender and sexuality. Glenn Ligon: Encounters and Collisions is a collaboration between Nottingham Contemporary and Tate Liverpool.
