Howardena Pindell: On the Performance of Autobiography
Over the course of nearly six decades, groundbreaking multidisciplinary artist Howardena Pindell has radically expanded the medium of painting and transformed the language of abstraction. Join us for a special screening of Pindell’s iconic "Free, White and 21," the first of only three videos in her body of work.

After the screening, Pindell will be in conversation with Naomi Beckwith, Deputy Director and Jennifer and David Stockman Chief Curator at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, Valerie Cassel Oliver, Sydney and Frances Lewis Family Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art at the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts, and Portrait Gallery Curator Charlotte Ickes. Beckwith and Cassel Oliver co-organized the 2018 exhibition "Howardena Pindell: What Remains to Be Seen."

This program is part of "Viewfinder: Women’s Film and Video from the Smithsonian," a monthly virtual film screening and conversation series sponsored by the Smithsonian American Women’s History Initiative, Because of Her Story. This second half of the series showcases creative responses to the external forces that shape the way we move through and experience the world.
