Through his installation and performance art, William Pope.L produces innovative interventions, often tackling topics of race and inequality within communities and public spaces. In conjunction with Blues for Smoke, Pope.L will stage a performance and hands-on project that invites visitors to explore the definitions surrounding the blues, and ask how the blues “aesthetic” has migrated over place and time. In collaboration with guitarists Richard Robinson, Kenny Wessel, and Nir Felder, Pope.L invites visitors to “bury the blues” by probing the transformation of this category through music, art, language, and geography.
The My Turn public programs series expands the definition of the museum program by inviting a guest artist to interpret an exhibition or another artist’s work.
This event is free with Museum admission, which is pay-what-you-wish on Fridays, 6–9 pm. There are no special tickets or reservations.
