“Part of the joy I feel looking at Interior Group is how expertly Simpson has evolved from having other women and men tell something of her story to Simpson herself telling her story.” - Hilton Als, excerpted from the essay, Shadows.

Lorna Simpson: Works on Paper

Text by Hilton Als, Connie Butler, Franklin Sirmans, Heidi Zuckerman Jacobson, Anna Deveare Smith.

Featured image, "Barbara K 001" (2009), is reproduced from <I>Lorna Simpson: Works on Paper</I>.One of the leading artists of her generation, Lorna Simpson (born 1960) came to prominence in the mid-1980s through her photographic and textual works that challenged conventional attitudes toward race, gender and cultural memory with a potent mixture of formal elegance and conceptual rigor. Published on the occasion of her 2013 exhibition at Aspen Art Museum, Lorna Simpson: Works on Paper highlights four recent bodies of work on paper that explore the complex relationship between the photographic archive and processes of self-fashioning, including a new group of works being developed during her time as the AAM’s 2013 Jane and Marc Nathanson Distinguished Artist in Residence. As in Simpson’s earlier works, these new drawings and collages take the African-American woman as a point of departure, continuing her longstanding examination of the ways that gender and culture shape the experience of life in our contemporary multiracial society. This beautifully illustrated catalogue features new scholarship by New Yorker staff writer Hilton Als, MoMA Chief Curator of Drawings, Connie Butler, LACMA Chief Curator of Contemporary Art, Franklin Sirmans, and the AAM’s Nancy and Bob Magoon CEO and Director, Heidi Zuckerman Jacobson.

PRAISE AND REVIEWS

Bookforum

Lauren O'Neill-Butler

The images and essays in the handsome accompanying catalogue are a testament to the connections, departures, and complexity of Simpson's recent output. Throughout the book we see that while Simpson finds new possibilities in drawing, she also nods, sometimes quite slyly, to deep-set traditions. As MoMA curator Connie Butler aptly notes in her essay, " The intimacy of the paper she chooses, consistently the 8 1/2x11 sheet of the notebook or sketchpad, is a scale close to photography's ancient history as well. "

A Lorna Simpson moment

A Lorna Simpson moment

If you made it to Frieze New York this week, you're probably thinking about Lorna Simpson, whose work is the subject of a solo show at Hauser & Wirth's stand. Just so happens that Lorna Simpson: Works on Paper is a staff favorite and a featured title at our Frieze bookstore. Connie Butler writes, "Simpson’s collaging is an act of recuperation of the contested, protofeminist female (and prefeminist male) image from the culturally charged site of Ebony. All the black-and-white magazine fragments in this series appear to be drawn from around the same cultural moment, and the artist exploits the humor that our historical distance from it brings to this juncture of civil, sexual, and cultural revolution. One face after another is adorned with a flourish of color and abstract form…" Featured image is Redhead (2011). continue to blog
