Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles - Alexis Smith for The Artist's Museum

"I'm like a writer who makes art instead." Alexis

Alexis Smith | The Artist's Museum from MOCA on Vimeo.

Alexis Smith is an artist who uses collage and installation to create alternate narratives and understandings of popular culture. Born and raised in Southern California, Smith considers herself a “product” of the entertainment industry. In this video, Ms. Smith gives us a look at how the materials in her studio become artworks, and explains how shared ideas about objects and images lead each viewer to have a unique experience with her work.

For more from Alexis Smith, chechk out these images from her 1992 survey at MOCA.
