Since the 1970s, German American artist Kiki Smith has created sculptures depicting both the female form and the female anatomy—down to the organs—that encourage feminist discourse. As revealing as they may be, the new Smith exhibit at Henry Art Gallery delves even deeper. I Myself Have Seen It: Photography and Kiki Smith (March 6-August 15) introduces a series of photographs that chronicle Smith’s creative process and show the different perspectives that influenced her long and successful career in sculpture, media and printmaking. If that’s not enough, Smith herself joins Henry chief curator Elizabeth Brown tonight in a discussion of Smith’s work, starting at 7 at UW’s Kane Hall, Room 120. Tickets are $12-$15 and available here.
This clip features Smith in the PBS series Art:21—Art in the Twenty-First Century.
