About this video

A retrospective of artist Glenn Ligon's work at the Whitney Museum provides a backdrop for his personal history growing up in New York, as well as for the disparate influences that contribute to his mature work—from DeKooning, to children’s coloring books of the 1970's, to classics of American literature by writers such as Gertrude Stein or Zora Neale Hurston.
