Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Critically acclaimed African American photographer Lorna Simpson combines text with images of the body. Making elegant statements about identity, gender, and race, her concept-driven images are both aesthetically beautiful and highly personal. On the occasion of Simpson's midcareer retrospective, opening at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles in 2006, this self-titled catalog by contemporary arts writer Enwezor (vice president, San Francisco Art Inst.) features a comprehensive look at nearly 20 years of her exceptional work, beginning with her earliest image/text pieces and moving chronologically into her most recent photography and video installations. With two essays, an exhibition checklist, a biography, and an interview with the artist, this beautifully illustrated catalog is an essential addition to any serious collection of art and photography.

    An excellent contribution to personal, academic, and community library photographic and artbook collections.

    Organized by the American Federation of the Arts, Lorna Simpson is a 20-year gallery and retrospective of contemporary artist Lorna Simpson's photographic and text works. Unafraid to delve into themes of race, sexuality, and loss, Simpson's striking imagery of the human figure, often cropped, speaks directly to the viewer. Black-and- white and color photographs give the reader the next best thing to a tour of a gallery of Simpson's art, and the brief text passages include commentary on Simpson's creations and a conversation with the artist. Lorna Simpson is an excellent contribution to personal, academic, and community library photographic and artbook collections.
