Over the last three decades, Glenn Ligon has produced a substantial body of work engaged, as one critic has succinctly noted, with the “presence of the past in the present.” In this print Glenn Ligon has layered the figures of the years ten on top of each other.
Ligon draws from the aesthetic language and formalism of minimalism and the textual and philosophical modes of conceptual art, and enriches this all through his formative engagement with the modes of cultural studies and critical theory that have gained prominence since the 1980s.
