Trailblazers in Black History: Lorna Simpson

This video was published on YouTube on March 20, 2014. 

Old sports photographs and hair commercials provide inspiration for American artist Lorna Simpson. The artist uses combinations of image and text to examine the processes through which meaning and understanding take place. 

Here Simpson shows TateShots how she arrived at this methodology and why her surroundings are so important to her work.
