The Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth presents a major survey of works by Laurie Simmons (American, born 1949), organized by Andrea Karnes, senior curator, with full support of the artist. This exhibition will showcase the artist’s photographs spanning the last four decades, from 1976 to the present, a small selection of sculpture, and two films.
The Modern maintains one of the foremost collections of modern and contemporary international art in the central United States. Various movements, themes, and styles are represented, including Abstract Expressionism, Color Field painting, Pop art, and Minimalism, as well as aspects of New Image Painting from the 1970s and beyond, recent developments in abstraction and figurative sculpture, and contemporary movements in photography, video, and digital imagery.
This holiday season, the Modern will again be illuminated with an even more spectacular array of festive lights.
The Museum will be open until 7 pm on Tuesdays and 8 pm on Fridays. Enjoy the view from Café Modern on Friday evenings for dinner, with seating available from 5 to 8:30 pm. Gallery admission is FREE on Fridays!
Sounds Modern presents "Broken Dolls," a concert exploring the dangerous rhythms of feminine identity, agency, and domesticity in American life. Like Laurie Simmons' photographs, the works on this concert explore dizzyingly impossible perspectives and scenarios that show humor and darkness of seemingly harmless, commonplace elements. Presented in conjunction with Laurie Simmons, Big Camera/Little Camera. Admission is free and open to the public.
