Allison Smith

American, b. 1972
Allison Smith's diverse artistic practice engages in an investigation of the cultural phenomenon of historical reenactment and the role of craft in the construction of national identity. Smith uses history as an aesthetic palette to produce sculptural installations and live art events alluding to contemporary social conflicts around notions of gender, art, and war. She received her MFA from Yale University. Smith has exhibited her work in numerous venues in the United States and abroad, including the Palais de Tokyo, Paris; Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art; Andy Warhol Museum, Pittsburgh; Socrates Sculpture Park, New York; Arario Gallery, South Korea; P.S.1 Contemporary Art Center, New York; and Studio Voltaire, London.
