Artist Heather Hart (NY) uses architectural forms mixed with family and oral histories, multiple narratives, and participatory engagements as integral components in much of her creative work. For this exhibition, she continues her exploration of community spaces to consider and challenge the evolving socio-political landscape. She has created site-specific architecture to house and interact with twenty of Smith’s sculptures. Hart’s piece is designed to facilitate multiple congruent streams of communication between Smith, herself, the work, and the public.
