Join FWM Curator Karen Patterson and Peter Barberie, Curator of Photographs at the Philadelphia Museum of Art, for an online conversation exploring the photographic work of Lorna Simpson. Learn more about the development of Spilling, Breaking Waves, an exhibition of Simpson’s work currently installed in the FWM galleries, and works selected by curator Karen Patterson highlighting the artist’s career in the 1990’s. Through discussion of works from this period—when Simpson experimented with new materials and new ways of depicting images that were purposefully absent of the female figure—find out how these explorations link back to her 1994 residency at The Fabric Workshop and Museum. While in residence, Simpson experimented with felt, half tones, and collaboration to create Standing in the water.
This program will be hosted via Zoom session; join us online with a beverage, a notepad, and a few questions to ask the curators. (Login details to be provided after registration.)
Free for FWM and PMA Members
Non-members: $5, sliding scale tickets available
