Best known for his richly textured text paintings that conflate word and image, Glenn Ligon (born 1960) is a multi-media artist whose conceptually-based practice balances race, sexuality, identity, representation, and language. His artworks are in the collections of the Walker Art Center, Minneapolis; the Art Institute of Chicago; and the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, Washington D.C., and elsewhere. He has been included in Documenta XIXXIV Bienal de Sao PauloBiennale di Venezia, 1997. Ligon curated a show of Karen Azoulay s work for Cue Art Foundation, New York and has presented a solo exhibition at Regen Projects, Los Angeles. Some Changes, a mid-career retrospective organized by Power Plant Contemporary Art Gallery, Toronto, was on view at the Wexner Center for the Arts, Columbus, OH in 2007.
