OPEN HOUSE 2018:Xaviera Simmons
Xaviera Simmons: 2018 Distinguished Performance Artist Award
Xaviera Simmons' sweeping body of work spans photography, performance, choreography video, sound, sculpture, and installation. Simmons’ interdisciplinary practice is rooted in shifting definitions of landscape, character development, art, political and social histories and the interconnectedness of formal processes. See her most recent work here.
Simmons received her BFA from Bard College in 2004 after spending two years on a walking pilgrimage retracing the Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade with Buddhist Monks. She completed the Whitney Museum’s Independent Study Program in Studio Art in 2005 while simultaneously completing a two-year actor-training conservatory with The Maggie Flanigan Studio. Simmons has exhibited nationally and internationally. Major exhibitions and performances include The Museum of Modern Art, NYC; MoMA PS1, NYC; The Studio Museum In Harlem, NYC; The Radcliffe Institute at Harvard University, The Contemporary Arts Museum Houston, Houston, TX; The Kitchen, NY, The Public Art Fund, NYC; David Castillo Gallery, Miami, FL; among many others.
