Howardena Pindell’s mixed-media work unfolds with the even-paced clarity of a case study. Pindell – a painting graduate from Boston and Yale Universities – combines the influence of her mathematician father with extensive historical research, curated in analytical sequences. In ‘A New Language’ – the artist’s first solo institutional exhibition in the UK – developments in Pindell’s socially conscious practice appear like points plotted on an ascending graph.
