You’ve still got time to head to the Hammer Museum at UCLA and see “Adrian Piper: Concepts and Intuitions, 1965–2016” — the most comprehensive West Coast exhibition to date of Piper’s work.
The show, which closes Jan. 6, features more than 270 works from the wide range of mediums that Piper has explored for more than 50 years: drawing, photography, works on paper, video, multimedia installations, performance, painting, sculpture and sound.
Piper’s groundbreaking, transformative work has profoundly shaped the form and content of Conceptual art since the 1960s, exerting an incalculable influence on artists working today. Her investigations into the political, social, and spiritual potential of Conceptual art frequently address gender, race, and xenophobia through incisive humor and wit, and draw on her long-standing involvement with philosophy and yoga.
Admission to the Hammer Museum is free.
