Adam Pendleton is a New York conceptual artist known for his multi-disciplinary practice moving between painting, publishing, photographic collage, video and performance. He is best known for his series of graphic screenprinted canvases entitled Black Dada - in 2011 Pendleton's Black Dada (LK/LC/AA) was acquired by The Museum of Modern Art. According to Pace Gallery, which has represented Pendleton since 2012, his work centers on an engagement with language, in both the figurative and literal senses, and the re-contextualization of history through appropriated imagery to establish alternative interpretations of the present and, as the artist has explained, 'a future dynamic where new historical narratives and meanings can exist.'
