Glenn Ligon

Glenn Ligon is an American conceptual artist working in multiple media. His work explores questions of race, desire, and sexuality.

"'African-American' or 'African-American Art' has always been a complicated place to live. A noisy cul-de-sac at the end of a long and winding road that lots of folks are curious about but only want to visit during the summertime."
