> DESCRIPTION

Glenn Ligon: AMERICA is the first comprehensive, mid-career retrospective of Glenn Ligon (b. 1960), widely regarded as one of the most important and influential American artists to have emerged in the past two decades. Organized by the Whitney Museum of American Art and curator Scott Rothkopf, in close collaboration with the artist, the exhibition surveys 25 years of Ligon's work, from his student days until the present. The exhibition features roughly 100 works, including paintings, prints, photography, drawings, and sculptural installations, as well as the artist's recent, striking neon reliefs. The retrospective also debuts previously unexhibited early works, which shed light on Ligon's artistic origins, and for the first time reconstitutes major series within his work, such as the seminal Door paintings that launched his career.
