Lorna Simpson at the Whitney

October 4, 2002

Photographer and filmmaker Lorna Simpson (BFA Photography, 1982) will have an exhibition of photography, Cameos and Appearances, at The Whitney Museum of American Art, 945 Madison Avenue at 75 Street, October 11 – January 26, 2003. Since the 1980s, Ms. Simpson has been creating provocative works that challenge racial and gender stereotypes. This exhibition includes new works of photography that involve her signature style of using silhouetted profiles that draw from cultural references that span from than the 1800s to the 1970s. Ms. Simpson was also at the museum earlier this year as a featured artist in the 2002 Whitney Biennial. In conjunction with her Cameos and Appearances, there will also be on view, for the duration of the exhibition, the American premiere of her new film installation, 31 at the Kaufman Astoria Studios in Queens. In 31, the camera tracks a month in the life of an unknown woman, seen in a grid of 31 small projections.
