A Group Show Considers Kafka’s ‘Amerika’ and Otherness in Art
In collaboration with acclaimed visual artist Shinique Smith, BAM Visual Art has produced a limited edition print series featuring three unique, vibrant images specially created by the artist. Produced in editions of 50, each archival inkjet print is signed and numbered by the artist. Prints are available for $1,200 each or $3,500 for all three. Proceeds benefit BAM’s artistic programming.

Shinique Smith composes her sculptures and installations from found objects and second-hand clothing tied together to form large cubes, bundles, and dense assemblages. Her creations reference a wide array of cultural and art historical themes, from Color Field Painting and other formal movements via the exuberantly colored clothing, to latent commentaries on recycling, materialism, and urban poverty. Her apparently spontaneous, cursive and looping paintings that accompany some of her installations at once point to graffiti and Eastern calligraphic traditions.
