Until her exhibition of an ink and acrylic work—True Value, 2015—at the 56th Venice Biennale, Lorna Simpson had not painted for over thirty years. Her return to the medium was again seen last year in the show Unanswerable at Hauser & Wirth in London.
The gallery’s New York exhibition LORNA SIMPSON—DARKENING features the artist’s ink and screenprint paintings from 2018, and this year’s Source Notes.
Through July 26.
