Silver Memorial Lecture
Lorna Simpson, a pioneering artist in conceptual photography, will deliver this year's 45th Annual Gail Silver Memorial address. Coming to prominence in the 1980s, Simpson’s early work—particularly her striking juxtapositions of text and staged images—raised questions about the nature of representation, identity, gender, race, and history that continue to drive the artist’s expanding and multi-disciplinary practice today. She deftly explores the medium’s umbilical relation to memory and history, both central themes within her work.
