Lorna Simpson
Since the beginning of her career in the mid-1980s, Lorna Simpson has been well known for her conceptual photographs and videos that challenge historical and preconceived views of racial and sexual identity. The artist will speak on the occasion of FOCUS: Lorna Simpson, the first museum exhibition to feature the artist’s large-scale acrylic, ink, and silkscreened paintings.
