While Gary Simmons, who has often defined himself as a sculptor, is widely known for his signature “erasure” drawings, he has consistently worked across media. This overview of Simmons's 20-plus year career brings together for the first time his photographs, installations, public projects, sculpture, drawings and paintings. Alongside approximately 150 plates, Gary Simmons: Paradise includes an in-depth interview with Okwui Enwezor, critical essays by Gwen Allen and Charles Wylie and a reprint of an important early text by Nancy Princenthal.

Thelma Golden is the Director and Chief Curator of the Studio Museum in Harlem. She is known for passionately keeping an eye on young and developing artists, while using the Studio Museum to write the history of collecting and art–making in Harlem and around the world.
