a lecture by Kellie Jones, PhD
Assistant Professor, History of Art and African American Studies
Yale University Tuesday, March 11, 2003, 6:00 pm
King Juan Carlos I of Spain Center
53 Washington Square South
For almost two decades Lorna Simpson has been subtly guiding us to
contemplate issues of history, race, and gender through photographic
form and written text. Beginning in 1997 she also began working in the
medium of film. This paper explores the artistís move from photography
into film, it considers her motivations as well as the filmic objects
themselves. Of particular interest is the relationship of this new work to the genre of film noir.
The lecture will be followed by a book signing for Lorna Simpson.
Books will be available for purchase at the event.
This event is free and open to the public.
