Artist’s Perspective: Wonder and Rainbows Presented by Shinique Smith
New York-based artist Shinique Smith is widely acclaimed for her highly expressive paintings, sculptures, and installations. The assemblages of used clothing and everyday objects, which often interact with energetic brushwork, reflect her personal history as well as broader cultural concerns. In this lecture, Smith will provide insight into her artistic practice and the myriad sources of inspiration from which she draws, ranging from graffiti to poetry to Eastern philosophies.
