Figgeo Contemporary: “Pinder” at the Figge Art Museum, Iowa

Figgeo Contemporary: Pinder
March 28th – June 28th, 2015

The Figgeo Video & Film series returns this spring with Figgeo Contemporary: Pinder featuring five recent works by Chicago and Washington, DC, artist Jefferson Pinder. Pinder explores themes of black identity, social struggle and the human condition through an interdisciplinary mix of music video and physical theater. Both familiar and unexpected, Pinder’s striking compositions actively engage the viewer with the directness of the actors’ gazes, hypnotic beats and, at times, intense physical movement.
