From Max Hetzler: Adam Pendleton

Adam Pendleton discusses his work within the context of his exhibition “Who We Are” at Galerie Max Hetzler, Berlin. Pendleton’s first exhibition with the gallery includes the latest examples of his spray-painted and silkscreened canvases, works on Mylar, System of Display, and video portraits, as well as a monumental wall intervention. The new work, much of which incorporates language from the composer Julius Eastman, demonstrates Pendleton’s layered, archival approach to creation as he inquires into the relationship between representation and abstraction, history, and notions of “blackness”.
