GLENN LIGON (1960 - )

Screenprint on Coventry Rag paper, 2014. 230x303 mm; 9x12 inches, full margins. Signed and numbered 35/50 in pencil, lower margin. Published by the Camden Arts Centre, London.

This limited edition was derived from Ligon's series of large paintings based on the 1966 seminal taped-speech work, Come Out, by Minimalist composer Steve Reich, and exhibited at the Camden Arts Centre, London, October 10, 2014 – January 11, 2015. Come Out is drawn from the testimony of six black youths, known as the "Harlem Six" arrested for a murder during the Little Fruit Stand Riot in 1964.
