Howardena Pindell (American), Untitled #5B (Krakatoa), 2007, mixed media on paper collage.
For nearly five decades, Howardena Pindell has explored the intersection of art and activism. This groundbreaking exhibition looks at the arc of this African American artist’s career through the presentation of paintings, video art and works on paper that celebrate her singular vision and its imprint upon abstract painting and conceptual art since the 1960s. This exhibition was organized by the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago and co-curated by Valerie Cassel Oliver, Sydney and Frances Lewis family curator of modern and contemporary art at VMFA and Naomi Beckwith, Manilow senior curator at MCA Chicago. Presented by Altria Group.
