“Some people think or expect that you should make the same kinds of art forever because it creates a convenient narrative… I want my work to embody my inherent contradictions.” – Kiki Smith
The Southern Shore Art Association continues the series Contemporary Artists and Themes: Stories on Sunday, May 15th at 2:00 p.m. at the SSAA Gallery. Kiki Smith is one of four artists along with Trenton Doyle Hancock, Do-Ho-Suh and Kara Walker being presented for viewing and discussion. Each of the artists in this program describes an event or element in his or her childhood that resonates in their current work. Their individual internal search striving for self-discovery is fascinating. Come join the discussion and challenge the traditional boundaries of your imagination and perhaps discover a pathway to your own story.
