Julia Kim Smith is a conceptual artist whose work explores issues of identity, memory, and the artistic, social, and political landscape. Her working method is interdisciplinary, and her projects take the form of performance, video, film, photography, and printmaking. Smith's debut solo show at the Creative Alliance, a collaborative installation with writer David Beaudouin on the post-9/11 American psyche, was hailed by Glenn McNatt, The Baltimore Sun, as "a stupendous achievement of minimalist, conceptual art that ought to forever lay to rest the idea that such work is no more than a dry intellectual exercise. This is art of unflinching intelligence, great passion and overwhelming emotional impact." Her work is exhibited nationally and internationally and has been featured in Angry Asian Man, Art Fag City, GQ, Hypebeast, Hyperallergic, Juxtapoz, Kidrobot KRonikle, Oasis Magazine (Saudi Arabia), Racebending.com, ShortList (UK), The Atlantic, and The Washington Post. Smith is an A.I.R. Gallery National Artist, Brooklyn, New York.
