Artist Conversation: Rose B. Simpson


Artist Conversation: Rose B. Simpson

Friday, September 9, 2022 @ 5:30 pm

Drawing inspiration from her life, Rose B. Simpson creates figural sculptures that evoke common human experiences—insomnia, aspiration, gender stereotypes, and more—and encourage an empathic response from the viewer. Join us for a virtual conversation with Simpson, facilitated by curator Bryan R. Just. Simpson will discuss specific works included in Witness as well as her artistic practice in general, which spans ceramics, attire, performance, and custom cars.
