Multimedia paintings and drawings from Pendleton’s acclaimed Untitled (WE ARE NOT) and Black Dada series and more
The catalog for Adam Pendleton’s (born 1984) 2022 exhibition at the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts, his first solo show in Canada, These Things We’ve Done Together features new monumental paintings from the Untitled (WE ARE NOT) series, which combine language and abstraction to erase distinctions between writing, drawing, painting and photography. Similar abstract gestures are reimagined and reexamined in a group of works on Mylar that combine layers of gestures and geometric shapes. In a third set of works―the latest iterations of Pendleton’s Black Dada drawings―he incorporates images of sprays, splatters and drips of paint from his studio walls. Supplementing these artworks is an interview between Pendleton and curator Mary-Dailey Desmarais, as well as a portfolio of 73 studio photos documenting traces of the physical and mental activity that drives his painting process.
