An acclaimed interdisciplinary artist and educator, William Pope.L (b. 1955) explores racism, classism, consumerism, and other sociopolitical issues through provocative performance art, theater, painting, and photography. His longest performance, titled The Great White Way, 22 Miles, 9 Years, 1 Street, was a crawl up the length of Manhattan. Please join us as this vital contemporary artist speaks on his career and practice, with a special focus on how his work has evolved since moving to Chicago in 2010, after 20 years of living in Maine.

Made possible by the Leonard and Merle Nelson Social Justice Fund at the Portland Museum of Art.

This event is sold out.
