Editorial Reviews

Library Journal - Library Journal
The multitalented Piper has exhibited conceptual art and sound works, staged influential performance pieces, and pursued a successful academic career as a philosopher through four decades. This catalog to her most comprehensive retrospective to date was assembled by Berger, a curator at the museum of the University of Maryland, Baltimore County. As a woman of color who is not recognized as such by the average person, she frequently confronts pure racism head on in her daily life and has dealt with it often in art that is both thoughtful and confrontational. This catalog is a very fine record of Piper's diverse work from the late 1960s through the 1990s, clearly presenting conceptual pieces that can be difficult to reproduce in print. A necessary adjunct for libraries that have Piper's collected writings (Out of Order, Out of Site, LJ 7/96), this is highly recommended on its own as a study of minimal and conceptual art and of art created on social issues for both large public and academic libraries.--Mary Hamel-Schwulst, Towson Univ., MD Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.\
