Art In America

William Pope.L

at Mitchell-Innes & Nash,
534 W 26th St

You sometimes hear people say "I don't care if he's black, brown or green, as long as he gets the job done," as if brown and green were equally ridiculous colors for a person to be. William Pope.L's latest show, "Colored Waiting Room," evokes that sentiment with painted slogans like "green people are the reflection which is form" and "orange people are the grid on the ceiling." There's also sculpture and installation and—are you ready for this?—olfactory works. (Pope.L is also included in "Radical Presence: Black Performance in Contemporary Art," on view this fall in New York.)
