Lorna Simpson’s first solo exhibition with Hauser & Wirth in New York will debut on April 25th.

In 1985, when Lorna Simpson just emerged from the graduate program, she was already considered a pioneer of conceptual photography. For more than 30 years, her groundbreaking practice centered on complex intersections of nature of representation, identity, gender, race, and history.

In Darkening, the artist tries her hand with a new medium— painting, at the same time returning and developing the artistic message, that has entangled viewers in a web of meaning. On view from April 25th through July 26th, the artist’s solo will present new large-scale paintings, alongside recent photographic collages and sculpture.

Lorna Simpson在纽约Hauser&Wirth的首次个展将于4月25日亮相。

1985年,Lorna Simpson刚从研究生院毕业,她已经被认为是概念摄影的先驱。在超过30年的时间里,她的开创性实践集中在代表性、身份、性别、种族和历史的复杂交叉点上。

在Darkening中,艺术家尝试用一种新的媒介绘画手法,同时回归和发展艺术信息,将观众纠缠在一个意义网中。 从4月25日至7月26日,这位艺术家的个展将展出新的大型画作,以及近期的摄影拼贴和雕塑作品。
