Michael E. Smith

Michael E. Smith was born in 1977 in Detroit, MI, USA. His objects and pictures as well as his videos seem like physical reconstructions of emotional disfigurement, his exhibitions like an archeology of humanity. He counters the ecological and economic disaster of our era with a materialism of basic needs, displayed as a layout of ruined bodies. Smith studies at the College for Creative Studies (CCS) in Detroit from 2004 until 2006. In 2008 he graduates from Jessica Stockholders' class at the Department for Sculpture at Yale University, New Haven. His latest exhibitions include the Whitney Biennial (2012), Culturgest Lisbon (2012), Les Ateliers de Rennes - Biennale D'Art Contemporain (2012), Ludwig Forum Aachen (2013), CAPC musée d’art contemporain, Bordeaux (2013), The Power Station, Dallas (2014), SculptureCenter, Long Island City (2015), De Appel, Amsterdam (2015) and Kunstverein Hannover (2015). Smith lives and works in Providence, RI.
