Wednesday, March 9th // 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm

Renowned conceptual artist Lorna Simpson has used photography, film, drawing, and, most recently, painting to confront and challenge conventional views of gender, identity, culture, history, and memory since she first became well known in the mid-1980s for large-scale photograph-and-text works. Simpson is a recipient of The Gordon Parks Foundation Award, The Whitney Museum of American Art Award, and she was a finalist for the Hugo Boss Prize from the Solomon R. Guggenheim Foundation.

Join MFA Boston as Simpson presents an engaging overview of her life and discusses the current direction of her work.

This event is part of The Ruth and Carl J. Shapiro Celebrity Lectures.
