Lorna Simpson: Gathered

Lorna Simpson (American, b. 1960). Please remind me of who I am, 2009. 50 found photo booth portraits, 50 ink drawings on paper, bronze frames. 2 x 1.5 inches each; overall dimensions variable. © Lorna Simpson, 2009; Collection of Isabelle and Charles Berkovic, Brussels

from Brooklyn Museum
28 January – 21 August, 2011

I enjoy the use historical images of unidentified African Americans posing for photo-booth portraits and them being integrated them into a series of multipart pieces. I'm always looking for a way to portray culture.
