THE AMAZING KIKI
Since the 1970s, Kiki Smith has created an impressive body of work relating to the physical and emotional experiences of women. Her new site-specific installation at the Brooklyn Museum's Elizabeth A. Sackler Center for Feminist Art, titled Sojourn, was inspired by a significant 18th-century needlework by Prudence Punderson, The First, Second and Last Scenes of Mortality. Via a range of Smith's cast objects, sculpture, and works on paper, the exhibit explores milestones of female artists, from creative awakening to death.
