The Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth presents a major survey of works by Laurie Simmons, organized by Andrea Karnes, senior curator, with full support of the artist.

This exhibition will showcase the artist's photographs spanning the last four decades, from 1976 to the present, a small selection of sculpture, and two films.

Simmons's career-long exploration of archetypal gender roles, especially women in domestic settings, is the primary subject of this exhibition and is a topic as poignant today as it was in the late 1970s, when she began to develop her mature style by using props and dolls as stand-ins for people and places.
