Public Tour: Adam Pendleton: To Divide By

October 7, 2023
2 pm

Student educators lead interactive tours of this season’s exhibition Adam Pendleton: To Divide By. Pendleton’s paintings and other works address codes of representation and abstraction, visual and literary uses of language, and the aesthetics of Blackness. The exhibition showcases an assemblage of the American artist’s new and recent paintings, drawings, and video portraits that together reveal his interest in creating a conversation between mediums and his belief in abstraction’s capacity to disrupt.

Free and open to the public. Please check in at the Welcome Desk when arriving for the tour to secure your place.


This program is funded in part by Women and the Kemper, the Ken and Nancy Kranzberg Fund, and a grant from the Women’s Society of Washington University.
