William Pope.L
Visual Arts

William Pope.L is a visual artist and educator whose multidisciplinary practice uses binaries, contraries, and preconceived notions embedded within contemporary culture to create artworks in various formats, for example, writing, painting, performance, installation, video, and sculpture. The goals for his work are several—joy, money and uncertainty—not necessarily in that order. Some of his most recent projects include ‘One Thing After Another’, La Panacée, Montpellier, France (2018); 'Brown People Are The Wrens In The Parking Lot', University of Chicago (2017); 'Flint Water', What Pipeline, Detroit, Michigan (2017); 'Whisper Campaign', Documenta 14, Athens, Greece, and Kassel, Germany (2017); and 'Claim', Whitney Biennial, New York City, for which he was awarded the Bucksbaum Prize (2017).
