Keith Smith at Home focuses on the Rochester, New York, based artist’s mixed media and experimental artists’ books, photographs, prints, and textiles. It surveys his work over the past half century, with a emphasis on his handmade books. Smith’s art is marked by a disregard for any supposed dividing lines between “fine art” (such as photography, etching, watercolor), “craft” (hand sewing, bookmaking), and “utilitarian technologies” (transparencies and photocopies). With these materials, Smith creates an immersive world of objects and pictures rooted in a personal narrative that grapples with ideas of self-representation, domesticity, friendship, love, and desire.
