Notes on the Role of the Artist when the world has always been on fire??

An Art, Technology, and Culture Colloquium, presented by the Department of Art Practice with Berkeley Arts + Design as part of Arts + Design Mondays.

with Pope.L
Artist, Chicago

Admission free; register here. Registration required. This event will not be live-streamed on another platform or recorded.

Join us for a talk by 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 race and class and almost always cut more than one way.”

About Pope.L

Pope.L has had solo exhibitions and performances at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst and The Project, New York. He has also been featured at the Cleveland Center for Contemporary Art, The Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles, and The Drawing Center in New York. His performances include Eracism at Thread Waxing Space in New York, Eating the Wall Street Journal at the Sculpture Center in New York, and The Black Body and Sport in Berlin, Prague, Budapest, and Madrid. His writing has been published in P-Form, M/E/A/N/I/N/G, and by Exit Art. Pope.L’s awards include fellowships from the National Endowment for the Arts, the Maine Arts Commission, a Franklin Furnace Award, and a Mid-Atlantic Residency.
