Spiritual qualities of everyday objects are the focus of Shinique Smith's art.

This exhibition presents a new body of work by Shinique Smith, whose multidisciplinary practice includes painting, sculpture, video, photography, installation and performance. Exploring ideas of transformation and ritual through materials such as fabric, clothing, personal belongings, breath, bundling, collage and gesture, Smith has built a complex visual vocabulary that resonates on intimate and social scales.

Smith’s Breathing Room: Moon Marked Journey will also debut—a new time-based work that evolved out of the artist’s 2018 performance at Open Spaces KC.
