Center for Curatorial Studies Presents

Speakers Series: Lorna Simpson
CCS Bard, Classroom 102
5:00 pm – 7:00 pm

Lorna Simpson came to prominence in the 1980s through her pioneering approach to conceptual photography. Simpson’s striking juxtapositions of text and staged images raised questions about the nature of representation, identity, gender, race and history; concerns that are reflected in the artist’s expanding and multi-disciplinary practice today. Her works have been exhibited at and are in the collections of the Museum of Modern Art, New York; the Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago; the Walker Art Center, Minneapolis; Whitney Museum of American Art, New York; Los Angeles Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles; and Haus der Kunst, Munich, amongst others. Important international exhibitions have included the Hugo Boss Prize at the Guggenheim Museum, New York; Documenta XI in Kassel, Germany; and the 56th Venice Biennale, Venice, Italy.

Speakers Series events are all free-of-charge with seating available on a first-come, first-serve basis.
