Adrian Piper: A Retrospective, 1965–2000 is a major retrospective of the art production of the internationally recognized artist and philosopher Adrian Piper. The exhibition centers on the most ignored aspect of Piper’s aesthetic innovations: the relationship between form and styles of art on one hand and the work’s political and emotional messages on the other.
