Alexis Smith 

Private Lives & Public Affairs

January 20 - April 1, 2018

For over 40 years, Alexis Smith's art has explored the depths of popular culture. She begins with an array of images—ranging from thrift-store finds to nostalgic advertisements—and juxtaposes them with poetic and poignant texts. Her art underscores how the media shapes our self-image and reminds us that meaning is often fugitive and always surprising.
