"Adrian Piper: A Retrospective, 1965 - 2000 and MEDI(t)Ations"
2000-10-27 until 2001-01-21
newmuseum
New York, NY, USA

Adrian Piper played a formative role in the emergence of Conceptual art in the 1960s and 1970s and an even more crucial role in the development of identity-based art in the 1980s and 1990s. The New Museum will integrate two exhibitions for its presentation of Piper's work, providing a comprehensive survey of the artist's 35-year career. A retrospective organized by Maurice Berger, Adjunct Curator at the Fine Arts Gallery, University of Maryland, Baltimore County, will present works by Piper in several media, including such seminal works as Food for Spirit (1971), selections from The Mythic Being series (1974-75), Four Intruders Plus Alarm System (1980), Funk Lessons (1983), and Cornered (1988).

MEDI(t)Ations, organized by independent curator Dara Meyers-Kingsley and distributed by Video Data Bank Chicago, compiles Piper's numerous works in video and audio from 1968 to 1991, outlining her early experimentation with new media in conjunction with her ongoing interests in conceptualism, performance, and issues of identity.
