EAST HAMPTON, NY.- Pace presenting a solo exhibition of new and recent work by Kiki Smith at its East Hampton gallery.

On view from August 4 to 14, the show will include sculptures, works on paper, and prints, spotlighting Smith’s multidisciplinary practice and her explorations of the tensions between heaviness and fragility as well as stability and ephemerality. This presentation will mark Smith’s twentieth solo exhibition with Pace, which has represented her since 1994.

Featuring large-scale bronze Sungrazer sculptures, meditative drawings of raindrops, cyanotypes depicting semi-abstracted climatic phenomena, and more, the exhibition focuses on the wonders of the natural world, presented through a playful and whimsical lens. Other works in the show include the bronze cat sculpture Minou (2021), the bronze owl sculpture Sentry (2020), and a selection of etchings and photopolymer prints. This East Hampton presentation showcases Smith’s longstanding interest in narratives, symbols, and wide-ranging histories of visual culture.

Later this year, Smith will open solo exhibitions at the Albuquerque Museum in New Mexico and the Seoul Museum of Art.

Kiki Smith has been known since the 1980s for her multidisciplinary work that explores embodiment and the natural world.

She uses a broad variety of materials to continuously expand and evolve a body of work that includes sculpture, printmaking, photography, drawing, and textiles.

Smith has been the subject of numerous solo exhibitions worldwide including over 25 museum exhibitions. Her work has been featured at five Venice Biennales, including the 2017 edition. She is a member of the American Academy of Arts and Letters and the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, and in 2017 was awarded the title of Honorary Royal Academician by the Royal Academy of Arts, London. Previously, Smith was recognized in 2006 by TIME Magazine as one of the “TIME 100: The People Who Shape Our World.” Other awards include the Skowhegan Medal for Sculpture in 2000; the 2009 Edward MacDowell Medal; the 2010 Nelson A. Rockefeller Award, Purchase College School of the Arts; the 2013 U.S. Department of State Medal of Arts, conferred by Hillary Clinton; and the 2016 Lifetime Achievement Award from the International Sculpture Center, among others. She is an adjunct professor at NYU and Columbia University.
