Laurie Simmons
A key member of the Pictures Generation, Laurie Simmons has been a leading feminist artist since the 1970s. Now, as a painter, photographer and filmmaker, Simmons continues to toy with ideas of gender, family, and identity. And it’s a family affair—Simmons and her husband, famed painter Carroll Dunham, share two children: trans activist Cyrus Grace Dunham and Girls creator Lena Dunham.
