About the ‘Stranger’ series

Ligon’s latest ‘Stranger’ paintings — including ‘Stranger (Full Text) #1’ (2020-2021), pictured at right in detail and below when previously on view at Hauser & Wirth Zurich, and ‘Stranger (Full Text) #2’ (2020-2021), recently on view at Hauser & Wirth New York, 22nd St.— are a monumental coda to a body of work he has been making for over two decades.

The Artist

Glenn Ligon

Born in the Bronx, New York, in 1960, Glenn Ligon received a BA from Wesleyan University in 1982. His early practice was grounded in painting, and his canvases of this period built upon the legacies of artists such as Philip Guston, Cy Twombly, Robert Rauschenberg, and Jasper Johns. In 1984 – 1985, Ligon spent an academic year in the Whitney Museum of American Art’s Independent Study Program, developing a series of representational drawings of iconic sculptures by European artists such as Alberto Giacometti and Constantin Brâncuși, juxtaposed against images of African American hair products rendered in acrylic and ink.
