Exhibit | Lorna Simpson: Gathered

Lorna Simpson: Gathered, on view at Brooklyn Museum, “…presents works that explore [the] Brooklyn-born artist’s interest in the interplay between fact and fiction, identity and history. Through works that incorporate hundreds of original and found vintage photographs of African Americans that she collects from eBay and flea markets, Lorna Simpson undermines the assumption that archival materials are objective documents of history.”  The exhibit is on view through August 21, 2011.  Be sure to watch the video of Simpson discussing her work.
