American, b. 1984
Adam Pendleton is a conceptual artist known for his multi-disciplinary practice, which moves fluidly between painting, printmaking, publishing, photographic collage, video and performance. His work is focused 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.”
His art has been shown at the Museum of Modern Art, the Whitney, the New Museum, and other shows internationally, including La Triennale at the Palais de Tokyo in Paris. He has been featured twice in Forbes Magazine’s “30 Under 30” list. Pendleton splits his time between New York City and Germantown, New York.
