Adam Pendleton

Biography from the Archives of askART

Adam Pendleton (b. 1984, Richmond, Virginia) is a conceptual *artist known for his multi-disciplinary practice, which moves fluidly between painting, publishing, photographic collage, video and performance*.

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.”
