I am taking a hiatus from blogging. The posts I now add will be unedited and unpolished, please forgive me. I am using this platform as a storage place for interesting things. I am currently focusing on editing wikipedia articles on contemporary art instead. I encourage you to do the same and to follow still very active blogs like hyperallergic, c-monster, bldgblog, and more. thanks you.

Glenn Ligon AMERICA

C-monster was kind enough to give me one of her copies of this fantastic book, here. This large book which full of great images of the work and a few essays that I probably should read sometime, came out with Ligon's retrospective at the Whitney.

Ligon's work impressed me with it's big impact which is carried down to the smallest of details. Thankfully this book includes many close-ups, allowing a better understanding of the works.
