For her latest solo exhibition at JTT Gallery, Point of View [15], alum Diane Simpson (MFA 1978) draws influence from many architectural sources as well as her own collection of photographs and drawings. Installed on September 9, Point of View features 11 sculptures and four drawings in total. A recent review from Hyperallergic [16] describes Simpson’s work as “deeply moving … she shows us that there is another possibility [within] a world delighted and entertained by displays of material excess.”
