Lorna Simpson

Lorna Simpson, a comprehensive survey of the multi-faceted work of one of the leading artists working in the United States today, will be on view at the Miami Art Museum from October 5, 2006 until February 4, 2007. The exhibition is organized by the American Federation of Arts (AFA) and curated by AFA Adjunct Curator Helaine Posner.

October 5, 2006 - February 4, 2007


Lorna Simpson first became well known in the mid-1980s for her large-scale photograph and text works that confront and challenge conventional views of gender, identity, culture, history, and memory. In the mid-1990s, she began creating large multi-panel photographs printed on felt that depict the sites of public—yet unseen—sexual encounters. More recently, she has turned to moving images. In film and video works such as Call Waiting, Simpson presents individuals engaged in intimate and enigmatic yet elliptical conversations that elude easy interpretation but seem to address the mysteries of both identity and desire.
