About This Product
Wedel Art Collective launched in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, drawing on the power of contemporary art to raise funds for international relief efforts and artist support. Jenny Holzer, Rashid Johnson, and Lorna Simpson have created face masks, each an artistic response to current times. Together we aim to encourage sustainable mask-wearing to protect one another and help reduce the environmental impact of single-use face masks.
Lorna Simpson
Born in Brooklyn, Lorna Simpson came to prominence in the 1980s with her pioneering approach to conceptual photography. Simpson’s early work – particularly her striking juxtapositions of text and staged images – raised questions about the nature of representation, identity, gender, race and history that continue to drive the artist’s expanding and multi-disciplinary practice today. She deftly explores the medium’s umbilical relation to memory and history, both central themes within her work.
