Baldwin Gallery, 209 South Galena Street, Aspen CO 81611

March 16 - April 15, 2012

The Baldwin Gallery is pleased to present its fourth show with the acclaimed photographer Laurie Simmons. Since the 1970s, Simmons has staged and photographed scenes using dolls, dollhouses and other toy objects to create self-contained worlds that function as psychological spaces and blur the boundaries between the real, the unreal, and the surreal. These intricate alternate-realities, though staged with toys and inanimate objects, reflect our real human emotions, dreams, and fears and enable the viewer to ponder the human psyche more objectively. In her latest series, The Love Doll, Simmons photographed an anatomically correct "Real Love Doll" from Japan in a human-scale home.

Room In My Head: Staging Psychological Spaces

Room In My Head: Staging Psychological Spaces

SCAD: Gutstein Gallery 201 E. Broughton St., Savannah, Ga.

February 10 – April 20, 2012

The SCAD exhibitions department presents "Room In My Head: Staging Psychological Spaces," a group exhibition featuring contemporary photographers whose constructed or manipulated interiors present varied states of mind. These artists charge their environments with a heightened sense of drama and suspense emphasizing particular vantage points, lighting, imaginative architecture, and symbolic and often unsettling references to the human psyche. These staged spaces serve as metaphors for our emotions, fears and imaginings, and blur boundaries between the real, the unreal and the surreal.

Tiny Furniture

IFC Center, New York

opens November 12th 2010

Winner of the best narrative feature at the SXSW Film Festival, TINY FURNITURE is a hilarious and endearing film that explores the depths of romantic humiliation and the heights of post-college confusion. Writer/director/star Lena Dunham is being called one of the most exciting new voices in American independent cinema and critics are hailing her film as “irresistibly funny”, “unnervingly honest”, and “near perfection”. TINY FURNITURE also stars Dunham’s real-life sister, Grace, and real-life mother, Laurie Simmons, the celebrated artist and photographer.
