Xaviera Simmons (b. 1974, New York, USA) lives and works in New York, USA. Simmons’ interdisciplinary practice spans across photography, performance, video, sound, sculpture and installation. Rooted in an investigation of past, present and future histories, her works often concern the interconnectedness of formal processes and their construction through landscape, language and portraiture. Simmons is a recipient of Agnes Gund’s Art for Justice Fellowship (2018) and will be a visiting lecturer at Harvard University, USA (2020). Recent exhibitions include SFMOMA, USA (2019), Phillips Collection, USA (2019); SculptureCenter, USA (2018); and MCA Chicago, USA (2017).
