Michael E. Smith (b. 1977) studied at Yale University. He now lives and works in Providence, RI and has exhibited at Michael Benevento (LA), Andrew Kreps (NYC), Lumber Room (Portland) and KOW (Berlin). … Smith’s exhibitions are silenced. Through modest gestures or interventions he forces spaces into emotional and symbolical tension. He improvises his scarce installations out of objects, both found and made, frequently right at the spot. These minimalist settings exist next to his sculptures, paintings, works on paper, and videos.
