Adrian Piper - Why Guess?
October 13 - November 3
Adrian Piper has made her art a long-standing commitment to confronting prejudice in America in its many forms: sexual, racial, ethnic. Her art uses critical strategies and analytic philosophy in a conceptual manner to shift the way that we view ourselves in a society where prejudices are still being perpetuated. This exhibition included the Vanilla Nightmares series (1986-90), an ongoing series of drawings on newspaper pages from the New York Times and a recent series of works combining photocollages and text. Both series use appropriated images from the media to examine the overt and subliminal racism pervasive in our society.
Pretend, an artist book by Adrian Piper, is a 24-page portfolio of loose sheets that includes 17 photographic images some of which include words, an essay by art historian and cultural critic Mary Anne Staniszewski and a text by the artist.
