Glenn Ligon: Artist Talk, The Menil Collection, Texas


Glenn Ligon delivers an Artist Talk on occasion of the Menil’s recent acquisition of his work, Untitled (Orpheus and Eurydice). Ligon discusses the concept of America in his work, from his text-based neon sculptures that illuminate words, phrases, and sentences to his highly textured language-based paintings that draw their content from American history, popular culture, and literary works by writers such as James Baldwin, Zora Neale Hurston, Ralph Ellison, Gertrude Stein, and Jean Genet, among others.
