Responding to Laurie
Submissions are open through Monday, June 21st, 11:59 p.m. EST
Online audiences are invited to view Laurie’s films and to sneak preview clips from Tiny Furniture—a film written and directed by her daughter, Lena Dunham, and featuring a role played by Laurie. Audiences are also invited to view images from her collaboration with fashion designer Peter Jensen to create a unique series of fashion photography.
After viewing a selection of these works below, Simmons invites viewers to submit related questions or responses—ranging anywhere from “What inspires you?” to “What was it like to be directed by your daughter?” to “Why do you use dolls so much in your work?”—in the form of text, video, or imagery.
Have a question or response to Laurie’s work? Feel free to leave it in the comments below. Feel more comfortable communicating by way of images, video, or audio? Media and discussion can be contributed via a special Vimeo group, Addressing Laurie.
Select responses will be used during the live event on June 23, so be sure to tune in to see if your responses were selected!
