Kiki Smith, born in Germany in 1954, is an American feminist artist. She started her career in the 1970s creating sculptures, but is now well-known for her prints, water colors, and ink and pencil drawings. Kiki Smith’s works have been shown at museums such as MOMA, The Brooklyn Museum and the Pompidou in Paris. Smith is represented by The Pace Gallery, which was originally located in Boston Massachusetts, but is now native to New York. During the summer of 2010, Smith created a special on-site exhibition at The Brooklyn Museum entitled Sojourn, which dealt with the female artists life. Within Sojourn Smith took the viewer from the female artist’s birth through her domestic duties, and ultimately to her death. Kiki Smith’s work often presents a hidden metaphor for serious social issues such as gender, race, and sexuality. Many of Smith’s pieces may push the viewer outside their comfort zone, but by doing so, Smith is able to confront them with the issues found within her works.
