A series of conversations exploring Howardena Pindell’s influence on artists, curators, activists, educators, and writers

About this Series

As a groundbreaking artist, curator, critic, educator, and activist, Howardena Pindell has influenced generations of people working in those fields. In conjunction with the exhibition Howardena Pindell: Rope/Fire/Water, this series of online conversations celebrates the ways colleagues from different fields have felt the artist’s impact both personally and professionally.

The Shed has invited a broad roster of artists, thinkers, activists, and representatives of other cultural organizations to celebrate the artist’s pioneering, multifaceted work via public programs that accompany the exhibition. Together, these participants will contextualize Pindell’s work in this critical moment in US history, reflecting on the past and thinking critically about the present, with the goal of reimagining and building new, collective paths to a radically equitable future.

Check back here for updates on speakers as we announce them.
