Alexis Smith (November 6, 1996)01:07:32

Elyse Grinstein introduces Alexis Smith as a Los Angeles-born multi-media artist whose work provides “insight into how we think and live, our identity, the collective American unconscious, our wistfulness as Americans, and our notions of purpose, destiny, and progress.” Smith begins by presenting her early temporary installations.

Smith presents several permanent works including the Keeler Grand Foyer in Grand Rapids, Michigan, and the MacArthur Park mini-monuments in Los Angeles.

Smith presents several projects including Men seldom make passes at girls who wear glasses, a project for the Robert Venturi addition to the Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego, the Jane series of collages, and Same Old Paradise.

Smith presents several projects including the Snake Path at UCSD, the New World installation for House and Garden Magazine, and the Los Angeles Convention Center terrazzo floors.
