Detail, 2014,

    To mark his exhibition at Camden Arts Centre, celebrated American artist Glenn Ligon has produced a new edition exclusively for Camden Arts Centre. Detail is a 3 colour screenprint featuring text taken from the testimonies of six black youths brutalised by police during the 1964 Harlem Race Riot. The rhythmic abstraction of language created by layers of overlaid text is recognisably connected to Ligon's large canvasses made especially for the exhibition
