Pendleton describes his signature Black Dada motif as a way of “looking at blackness as an open-ended idea, not just related to race, but in relationship to politics, to art, specifically to the avant-garde.” In this work, the layering of paper pulp builds its own history, much like Pendleton builds upon the history of Dada, and the layering of “Black” upon “Dada” invokes the political without prescribing to the viewer the intent of the work.
