AIC/Smart Museum of Art: Attention and Testimony in the Works by Lorna Simpson
January 8, 2021 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Contemporary photographer Lorna Simpson first became known in the 1980s for work that confronted race, gender, and history.
This participatory conversation, co-led by Sam Ramos, Art Institute educator, and Aneesah Ettress, curatorial and academic engagement intern at the University of Chicago’s Smart Museum of Art, considers Simpson’s combination of large-scale, multi-panel photographs and paired text in order to put word and image into a poetic dialogue.
This program is co-presented by the Smart Museum of Art and the Art Institute of Chicago.
