Adrian Piper. Museum of Modern Art March 31 to July 22, 2018

A Major Retrospective of Conceptual Pioneer Adrian Piper is Opening at Museum of Modern Art in 2018

“No matter how much I ask my mother to stop buying crackers, cookies, and things, she does so anyway and says they are for her, even if I always eat them. So, I decided to fast.”

“Mythic Being,”

THE MUSEUM OF MODERN ART (MoMA) in New York is presenting a major retrospective of conceptual artist Adrian Piper in spring 2018. The most comprehensive exhibition to explore her practice,”Adrian Piper: A Synthesis of Intuitions, 1965–2016″ will feature more than 280 works drawn from public and private collections around the world and be on view at MoMA from March 31 to July 22, 2018.

The treatment is long overdue. For half a century, Piper has produced pioneering work that has shaped the field of Conceptual art. She has influenced generations and received the Golden Lion Award for Best Artist at the 56th Venice Biennale in 2015 (above), but never had a major career retrospective.
