Sable Elyse Smith Visiting Artist Talk | Marking Time: Art in the Age of Mass Incarceration

List Art Center, Room 120

The Department of Visual Art at Brown University presents a talk by Sable Elyse Smith. Sable Elyse Smith is an interdisciplinary artist, writer, and educator based in New York. Using video, sculpture, photography, and text, she points to the carceral, the personal, the political, and the quotidian to speak about a violence that is largely unseen, and potentially imperceptible. 

Her work has been featured at MoMA Ps1, New Museum, The Studio Museum in Harlem, JTT gallery and numerous others. Smith has received awards from Creative Capital, Fine Arts Work Center, the Queens Museum, Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture, Rema Hort Mann Foundation, the Franklin Furnace Fund, Louis Comfort Tiffany Foundation and Art Matters. She is currently Assistant Professor of Visual Art at Columbia University.

Two works by Smith are currently on view in Cohen Gallery in the exhibition Marking Time: Art in the Age of Mass Incarceration, through December 18, 2022.
