“Being an artist was a great excuse for anything you wanted to do that was ‘different’,” says the artist, photographer and filmmaker Laurie Simmons, whose work is the subject of a major retrospective survey on show now at the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth (until 27 January).

In this episode, she talks to host Charlotte Burns about everything from Internet culture to egalitarian art and the concept of magical thinking. Simmons’s tableaus, which are often created with dolls, explore memory, sexuality and artifice and she discusses what it was (and is) like working in a male-dominated industry.

Laurie Simmons has a message for artists: “those years when no one has their eye on you and you’re free to work, those are your best years."

The artist, filmmaker and photographer always knew she wanted to work in this field. She pursued her dreams even despite a teacher's cautioning early on to get out of art. She had her first solo show in ‘79 and is just now wrapping up a five year project: it's a film called “My Art" in which she's starring and directing.
