Quote of Note | Laurie Simmons

“I’ve lived with life as an artist, with an artist. Tip [husband Carroll Dunham] and I were lucky to find each other, and this life that works for both of us. There’s a surprisingly large list of things that I haven’t had, in terms of museum shows and recognition, but I’m so interested in the present right now. I don’t want my new work to have anything to do with nostalgia. Artists are ridiculous. We’re totally scornful when people in other fields try to do art, but we think we can do anything–act, write, do extreme sports. Young artists have given me that license, because the old distinctions don’t exist for them.”

-Laurie Simmons in “A Doll’s House,” a piece by Calvin Tomkins that appears in this week’s issue of The New Yorker
