Howard and Michael Smith
in conversation with Jenny Dixon

 

Wednesday, June 13, 6PM

 

Jane Lombard Gallery
518 W. 19th Street
New York, NY

 

In celebration of the current exhibition Howard Smith’s 1 + 1 + 1 … paintings and works on paper, Jane Lombard Gallery invites you to join us for an evening of conversation with brothers Howard and Michael Smith, moderated by Jenny Dixon. 

 

The brothers will discuss their artistic practices. Howard Smith is a self-described mark-maker, having spent time in his youth in search of the perfect brushstroke. Michael, a video / performance artist, focuses on "failure" as a primary theme in his work. In spite of their different perspectives and approaches to art, they maintain a close bond and engage in an ongoing creative dialogue. 

 

Both brothers have known Jenny Dixon since the 1970s when she directed the Public Art Fund. She collaborated with Howard Smith in the 1980s on a magazine called Issue, A Journal for Artists. Dixon was the director of the Noguchi Museum from 2003–2017.
