Adrian Piper: A Synthesis of Intuitions, 1965–2016

Museum of Modern Art, New York

NOW CLOSED

This exhibition – Adrian Piper’s first American museum exhibition in over 10 years – explores how the artist has continually challenged our assumptions about the social structures that shape the world around us, and served as a groundbreaking figure in the realm of conceptual art since the mid-1960s. Often drawing from her personal and professional experiences, including her engagement with philosophy and yoga, Piper’s contributions have directly addressed gender, race, xenophobia, and, more recently, social engagement and self-transcendence. The exhibition will encompass the wide range of media that Piper has explored for over 50 years: drawing, photography, works on paper, video, multimedia installation, performance, painting, sculpture, and sound. Find out more about the Adrian Piper exhibition from MoMA’s website.
