Gary Metz Lecturer | Xaviera Simmons
RISD's Photography department welcomes Gary Metz lecturer Xaviera Simmons, whose sweeping body of work spans photography, performance, choreography, video, sound, sculpture and installation. Working across these multiple media, Simmons’ interdisciplinary practice often repositions our understanding of memory, time, politics, character-based narratives and the landscape. She defines her studio practice as being rooted in an ongoing investigation of experience, memory, abstraction, present and future histories—specifically revolving around shifting definitions of landscape, character development and the interconnectedness of formal processes.
