Lorna Simpson: Everrrything
September – January 2022

“‘Everrrything’ will debut a rich array of recent and never-before-seen works by the multidisciplinary artist Lorna Simpson. United by her long-established visual vocabulary of found imagery and poetic juxtapositions, the sculptures, paintings, collages, and installation works on view break new ground in Simpson’s thirty-plus year career, and clearly affirm her stature as one of the most dynamic artists working today.

Featuring work made over the course of the past year, the exhibition continues Simpson’s exploration of the nature of representation, identity, gender, race, and history through her appropriation of photo booth snapshots, vintage magazine advertisements, celestial maps, and images from scientific textbooks. Through unexpected reconfigurations of this diverse array of visual culture, in both two and three-dimensional formats, the artist continues to develop her distinctive language of the found image as a source, encouraging new narratives to emerge from unexpected origins.”
