Xaviera Simmons lives and works in New York. Simmons' interdisciplinary practice spans across photography, performance, video, sound, sculpture and installation. Rooted in an investigation of past, present and future histories, her works often deal with the interconnectedness of formal processes, and their construction through landscape, language and portraiture. Prior to her graduation from Bard College, USA (2004), she spent two years on a walking pilgrimage retracing the transatlantic slave trade with Buddhist monks. Simmons is a recipient numerous awards including Agnes Gund's Art for Justice Fellowship (2018) and is a 2019-2020 visiting lecturer at Harvard University . Recent exhibitions include SFMOMA (2019), Phillips Collection, USA (2019); Sculpture Center, USA (2018); Prospect 5 New Orleans, USA (2017); and MCA Chicago, USA
