Glenn Ligon belongs to a generation of artists who became famous at the end of the 1980s and beginning of the 1990s with paintings and photo-texts that explored the aesthetic, social, linguistic and political issues of race, sex and sexuality. Ligon’s practice takes on various art forms – painting, engraving, sculpture, installation and video – each chosen in relation to its privileged capacity to treat complex subjects defying the usual categories. Glenn Ligon – Some Changes presents an overview of this work covering seventeen years and explores the idea of ‘revision’, emphasizing Ligon’s practice that consists in modifying the subjects and themes of previous works to produce new works in different mediums.
