Talk: Artists on Art—Barbara T. Smith

2 pm | Sat, January 12, 2019
Art of the Americas Building

The Artists on Art series offers a glimpse inside LACMA’s collection through the eyes of various artists working in Los Angeles today. For this event, Barbara T. Smith will choose artwork from the Photography and Prints & Drawings collections to display in the Study Center. She will discuss why she selected this artwork and how it relates to her own art practice.

Barbara T. Smith works in a variety of media, including performance, video, installation, painting, drawing, and artist’s books. She often uses her own body in her work and explores themes on human nature, sexuality, nourishment, spirituality, and death, amongst other topics. Smith was at the forefront of the feminist movement and the experimental art scene in Southern California in the 1960s and co-founded the art space, F-Space with Chris Burden and Nancy Buchanan.

The Artists on Art series is made possible by the Flora L. Thornton Foundation.
