Taryn Simon graduated from Brown University in 1997. Her work questions the role of the image, how it is categorised and its power, in the form of photographs, video and writing. Archives and memory and their context form the subjects of works that have an anthropological quality. Part conceptual art, part political statement, she creates visual inventories of our society.

In The Collection

Exhibition of the Collection

From 27 October 2014 to 25 October 2014

Inaugural Hang

Curated to complement Frank Gehry’s architecture, the first hang displayed a selection of emblematic works from the four themes of the collection (Contemplative, Pop, Expressionist, Music/Sound) by Christian Boltanski, Pierre Huyghe, Bertrand Lavier, Gerhard Richter and Thomas Schütte. As part of his commission for the auditorium, one room was dedicated to the works of Ellsworth Kelly.
