Artists on Art: Paul Mpagi Sepuya on Lorna Simpson

For Artists on Art, Paul Mpagi Sepuya discusses 1957-2009 Interior #3 (2009) by Lorna Simpson.

Paul Mpagi Sepuya is a Los Angeles-based photographer whose work deconstructs form, style, and tradition, with a critical lens toward art history. Through the use of mirrors, collaged images, and staging, Sepuya’s photographs examine portraiture, self-image, the artistic process, queer identities, and erotic visual culture. Sepuya also explores the artist’s studio as a social space, incorporating groups of people, or their isolated body parts, with whom the artist has a close relationship.
