Lorna Simpson, 15 Mouths. This photo is successful because it creates a sense of identity without showing much of or about the person. It's showing how we all are equal and posses the same physical attributes, but are very different from each other. This may be one of my ideas for the constructive narrative project.


Lorna "Simpson "Wigs (Portfolio)" 1994 #IdentityPolitics #CultureWars. Among the subjects of Simpson's art is the experience of African American women in contemporary American society, a topic that encompasses issues of race and gender. Depicted here is a diverse group of wigs in an orderly presentation that suggests a line-up of scientific specimens. Text panels with artist's commentary on their use by women, entertainers, transvestites.
