Glenn Ligon: Debris Field / Notes for a Poem on the Third World

$40.00 Sale Save

For his first solo exhibition at Galerie Chantal Crousel, Paris, Glenn Ligon explored the themes of American history, literature, and society by focusing on words, their meaning, and illegibility. He used various literary sources, including texts by James Baldwin, Gertrude Stein, Walt Whitman, and Jean Genet, to give palpable density and weight to the written word. This is the catalog that accompanied the exhibition.
