Adam Pendleton’s monumental Black Dada Flag (Black Lives Matter) (2015-18) will be planted on the bank of NYC Parks’ Randall’s Island near what is now officially called Scylla Point – noted on historical maps as “Negro Point”, positioned close to Hell Gate – where the East and Harlem Rivers meet Previously exhibited at the Venice Biennale’s Belgian National Pavilion in 2015, the new, larger scale flag will dance over its new territory, indexing unlikely correlations: state-sanctioned violence and Modernist abstraction, the street march and the Bauhaus, Negro and Scylla. Representing Frieze’s first six-month installation on Randall’s Island, the work will be in place from May 1 to November 1, 2018.
