Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth will present Laurie Simmons: "Big Camera/Little Camera.” 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' 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. Often isolating the dolls and photographing them situated in tiny, austere settings, in series such as Early Black & White, 1976-78, Simmons uses fictional scenes to make observations about real life. These works are now iconic of her career.
