Thursday @ 6:30 pm: Join us at the Museum or via #FacebookLive for a conversation between artist Pope.L and @christopherylew, the Whitney’s Nancy and Fred Poses Associate Curator and co-curator of the 2017 #WhitneyBiennial. #PopeL is the recipient of the ninth #BucksbaumAward, which was presented to an artist selected from among the 63 participants in the 2017 Biennial. His socially engaged practice, spanning performance, theater, installation, video, and painting has interrogated conceptions of class, community, language, and race for over forty years. Hear him discuss his practice in the context of contemporary art in America. Tap the link in our profile for tickets or join us online.
