Think Coffee, Union Square, 123 4th Avenue, NYC

A breakfast salon for the 21st century that takes place in the early hours of the day at Think Coffee Union Square, hosted by the Jewish Museum. Artist Adam Pendleton discusses his recent projects with Jens Hoffmann, Director of Special Exhibitions and Public Programs including his work on view in the exhibition The Arcades: Contemporary Art and Walter Benjamin.

Adam Pendleton was born in 1984 and lives and works in Brooklyn, New York. He is a conceptual artist known for his multidisciplinary practice, which includes painting, publishing, collage, video, and performance. His work engages with language, both figuratively and literally, and addresses the re-contextualization of history. Through his work, Pendleton seeks to establish “a future dynamic where new historical narratives and meanings can exist.” Pendleton’s work has been widely exhibited internationally in venues including MoMA, the New Museum, The Kitchen (all New York), Stedelijk Museum (Amsterdam), Museum of Contemporary Art (Chicago), Whitechapel Gallery (London); and the Museum of Contemporary Art (Denver), where his traveling solo exhibition Becoming Imperceptible was recently on view. 

Coffee and conversation are free.
