Considered one of the most influential artists of her generation, Smith incorporates enigmatic and radical reinterpretations of conventional representations of the human form in her work. Represented by PaceWildenstein Gallery, Smith has had numerous exhibitions throughout the world, including solo shows at the Museum of Modern Art and the Whitney Museum of American Art, both in New York; the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis, Minnesota; the Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles; and the Centre d’Art Contemporain in Geneva, Switzerland, among many others. Her work is in public and private collections worldwide. Daughter of artist Tony Smith and actress and opera singer Jane Lawrence, Kiki Smith was born in Nuremberg, Germany in 1954. Classified as a “Feminist artist,” Smith uses a multitude of mediums to provocatively explore the political and social issues dealing with gender and race. Often undermining the traditional erotic nature of artistic representations of women. The Modern Museum of Art in New York has collected her work consistently and owns over fifty of her print projects. In 2005, the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art held a retrospective of Smith’s work entitled “Kiki Smith, A Gathering 1980-2005,” which traveled to the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York in 2006.
