Noah Simblist

Noah Simblist, a Dallas-based artist and writer, has made a significant mark on the Dallas–Fort Worth metroplex in the brief four years since he arrived from New York to teach painting at Southern Methodist University. Most recently he has organized a monumental undertaking, Collecting & Collectivity, which is a year-long program including a symposium, lectures, and an exhibitionSimblist’s art shows the same rigor as his scholarly and curatorial pursuits. Through methodically executed paintings, drawings, videos, text pieces, and sound installations, he surveys the politics of identity and the way it is manifested within formal investigation. Currently engaged with issues of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, Simblist’s work questions “if there is any possibility left for political content in abstract form.”
