About Howardena Pindell: A New Language

Howardena Pindell (b. 1943, Philadelphia) is a major contemporary artist based in the US. This is the first UK museum presentation of her work. Encompassing the poetic and the political, Pindell’s remarkable practice over six decades draws from her own experience as an artist, teacher and activist. Her compelling and beautiful works of art often respond to the social and political realities of our time, calling for urgent engagement and action.
