Adam Pendleton

Black Dada Reader

The Black Dada Reader is a collection of texts and documents (most in facsimiles) that elucidates, Black Dada a term the artist Adam Pendleton uses to define his artistic output.

This ‘reader’ brings a diverse range of cultural figures into a shared cultural space, including Hugo Ball, W.E.B. Du Bois, Stokely Carmichael, and Gertrude Stein, as well as artists from different generations, such as Joan Jonas and William Pope.L.

Originally intended to be an in-studio publication, the book has expanded to include essays on the concept of Black Dada and its historical implications from curators and critics including Adrienne Edwards (Walker Arts Center / Performa), Laura Hoptman (MoMA), Tom McDonough (Binghamton), Jenny Schlenzka (PS122), and Susan Thompson (Guggenheim).
