Pope.L’s socially engaged practice, spanning performance, theater, installation, video, and painting has interrogated conceptions of class, community, language, and race for over forty years. He is the recipient of the 2017 Bucksbaum Award, a prize granted to one artist in each Whitney Biennial in recognition of work that demonstrates a singular combination of talent and imagination. Christopher Y. Lew, Nancy and Fred Poses Associate Curator and co-curator of the 2017 Biennial, joins Pope.L to discuss his practice in context of contemporary art in America.
