ALEXIS SMITH. Richard Armstrong. Whitney Museum of American Art, New York, 1991. Distributed by Rizzoli International Publications, Inc., New York. 244 pp. with 219 ills. (170 col.). 28 x 23 cm. LC 91-18179 ISBN 0847814467 In English.
Accompanies the first major survey of the work of California artist Smith (b. 1949), whose sophisticated, often sardonic collages, assemblages and multi-media installations extend the vocabularies of Dada and Pop art through the combination of found objects with images and texts culled from pulp novels of the 1940s and 50s, advertisements, postcards, B movies and other sources. Featuring excellent illustrations of some 150 diverse works dating from the 1970s to 1990, the catalogue includes an interview in which Smith discusses the sources of her themes and imagery, a lengthy review of her career analyzing individual works and series, and a fanciful "biography" of the artist by poet Amy Gerstler.
