November 11, 2017

Visual Arts adjunct faculty member, Kiki Smith, is featured in a solo exhibition titled, From the Creek, at The Thomas Cole National Historic Site in Catskill, NY. From the Creek will run until November 17th, 2017.


Professor Smith is the second artist to be selected for the museum’s second annual series, OPEN HOUSE, which seeks to “activate conversations between artists and ideas across the centuries.” Twenty-five of Smith’s pieces, which include a range of sculptures, prints, paintings, and mixed-media work, are showcased in and around the museum, which was formerly the home of the artist, Thomas Cole. Cole was the founder of the Hudson River school of painting.


Working in multiple disciplines, but primarily as a sculptor and printmaker, Smith’s work explores “the human condition and the natural world,” according to Pace Gallery, who represents her work. She has had solo exhibitions at the Museum of Modern Art, the Whitney Museum of Art, the Brooklyn Museum, and the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden in Washington, D.C., among others. Smith was born in West Germany, and she nowt splits her time between New York City and the Catskills.
