ADAM PENDLETON: BECOMING IMPERCEPTIBLE. Contemporary Arts Center, New Orleans, 2016. Published by Siglio Press, Los Angeles. Distributed by Artbook|D.A.P., New York. 144 pp. 24 x 19 cm. ISBN 9781938221132 In English.
Publisher's description: Reframed, reconditioned and perpetually reoccurring, found images have served as Adam Pendleton's (born 1984) primary tools and source material throughout his practice. Becoming Imperceptible follows the logic of Pendleton's museum installations, constructing social and aesthetic histories, comprised of images in process and inscribed in the structure of their container. Drawing on a diverse archive that traverses European, African and American avant-gardes and civil rights movements of the last century -- from Dada and Bauhaus to Black Lives Matter literature, from Language poetry to Black Power poetics, from Conceptual art to African Independence movements -- Becoming Imperceptible frames a complex dialogue between culture and system. This artist's book, the first in a Siglio collection accompanying exhibitions at the Contemporary Arts Center, New Orleans, embodies Pendleton's practice by inviting the reader in an unfolding conversation about race and history, art and form.
