Join us for a webinar with Chicago-based artist Pope.L, whom the New York Times called “inarguably the greatest performance artist of our time. . . . Over the course of the last four decades, no artist has so consistently broken down the accepted boundaries of the genre in order to bring it closer to the public, with lacerating, perspicacious, and gloriously anti-authoritarian projects that play with our received notions of class and almost always cut more than one way.” UC Berkeley Assistant Professor in Painting Kenyatta A. C. Hinkle will facilitate the conversation.
Pope.L is a visual and performance-theater artist and educator who makes culture out of contraries. His work has been featured in exhibitions around the world, including documenta 14 (2017) and the Whitney Biennial, where he was awarded the Bucksbaum Prize (2017).
Hinkle is an interdisciplinary visual artist, writer, and performer whose practice encompasses collaborations, participatory projects, and intimate works linked to historical events and contexts.
This event is presented by UC Berkeley’s Department of Art Practice, Wiesenfeld Visiting Artist Series, and Berkeley Center for New Media.
