PRESS RELEASE

Opening reception: Saturday, July 18, 6-8 PM

In the East Wing, CvsD is delighted to present Ivory Anthropologie, an exhibition of new works on paper by Cauleen Smith. Based in Chicago, Smith is known for her film, video, and installation work, including a beautiful piece currently on view in The Freedom Principle at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago. Though she has been represented by the gallery for some time, this is Smith’s first solo show at CvsD, debuting a series of wonderfully playful, slightly wicked works appropriating magazine imagery, on which she replaces the figures with a bar of soap painted in white out. Wry, subversive, and beautiful, these small works represent a rare excursion into more conventional media for the adventurous Ms. Smith.
