Artist and philosopher

Adrian Piper is an artist and philosopher. She has taught analytical philosophy at various American universities and is the author of publications on metaethics, Kant, and the history of ethics. As a conceptual artist, she produces artworks in a variety of media. Her work explores the nature of subjecthood and agency, the limits of the self, and the continuities and discontinuities of individual identity in metaphysical, social, and political contexts that often address the realities of race and gender. Piper’s work is in the collection of major museums and cultural institutions, and recent exhibitions include: Before Projection: Video Sculpture 1975–1955, MIT List Visual Arts Center, Cambridge, 2018; Plato in L.A.: Contemporary Artists’ Visions, The Getty Museum Villa, Los Angeles, 2018; and solo exhibition Adrian Piper: A Synthesis of Intuitions, 1965–2016, Museum of Modern Art, New York, 2018. Piper lives and works in Berlin.
