The most comprehensive and up-to-date monograph available on the work of the celebrated artist, a trailblazer who continues to influence and inspire

Lorna Simpson is a multimedia artist known for her pioneering approach to conceptual photography. In 1993 Simpson was the first African-American woman ever to show in the Venice Biennale and to have a solo exhibition at the Museum of Modern Art, New York.  

This landmark book documents Simpson’s  career in its entirety, up to her most recent work – Simpson’s portrait of Rihanna for the January 2021 cover of Essence has been deemed as one of the most iconic fashion images ever made by a panel of experts in The New York Magazine. In doing so, it sheds light on the remarkable path that Simpson paved to global critical acclaim and art-world stardom. The first edition of this sell-out volume has been thoroughly revised and updated, including a new essay by the superstar curator and recently appointed Guggenheim Deputy Director Naomi Beckwith.
