The Foundation assisted in funding, Kiki Smith: A Gathering. 1980 – 2005 at the Walker Art Center on display during the spring of 2006. “Best known for her provocative depictions of the human form, Kiki Smith has explored a range of subjects, from natural science to mythology.
By turns intimate, universal, earthy, and fragile, her art renders the figure in frank, nonheroic terms, expressing its dual aspects of vulnerability and strength. Comprising more than 125 works, this Walker-organized 25-year survey reveals the startling symbolic potential in Smith’s choice of both traditional and unexpected materials in sculpture and also features prints, drawings, photographs, editioned objects, films, and installations.”
