Chicago: Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago, 1992. Measures 21" chest, 27.5" length, white cotton short sleeve, tag reads Oneita Power-T, L.
T-shirt for conceptual Black photographer Lorna Simpson's 1992-93 exhibit "Lorna Simpson: For the Sake of the Viewer" at the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago. The double-sided shirt features Simpson's "Flipside," pairing the back of an African mask on the front with the back of a woman's head on the back, and the wraparound caption "the neighbors were suspicious of her hairstyle." The work is one of many by Simpson investigating Black identity and racial scrutiny through hair. Unworn. Item #5916
