Summary
"Lorna Simpson, which accompanies a major mid-career retrospective organized by the American Federation of Arts, offers a comprehensive examination of this artist's remarkable achievement over a period of more than twenty years of production. The works featured include examples of the artist's earliest photograph and text works, in which she introduces the basic elements of combining a figure whose body is often cropped or whose face is hidden from view with fragments of text that confound the viewer's expectations of narrative and identity. Simpson's illustrious career is charted up to the present with film and video installations from 1997 to 2004, as well as the artist's most recent photographs."--BOOK JACKET
