The Gramercy Theatre

127 East 23 Street at Lexington Avenue

Artist Kiki Smith and critic and novelist Lynne Tillman explore major themes in Smith’s work, such as anatomy, self-portraiture, nature, and the feminine, with special attention to the artist’s articulation of these themes in printed art. Smith’s fascination with printed art forms-from postage stamps to medieval prayer books to Victorian children’s books-and how they have informed her own printed work, are also discussed. Moderated by Wendy Weitman, Curator, Department of Prints and Illustrated Books, The Museum of Modern Art, and organizer of Kiki Smith: Prints, Books, and Things.
