GREG SMITH (b.1970) stages exhibitions that consider the possibilities and problems presented by our current technological deluge. He builds installations using an amalgam of unlikely materials and processes that trace contemporary limits of language, ownership, and governance. Through his enigmatic work, the artist delivers coded messages that reward the curious viewer with access to hidden assets. Smith has had solo exhibitions at the Faulconer Gallery, Grinnell College, Grinnell, IA; Museum of Fine Arts, St. Petersburg; the McNay Art Museum, San Antonio; and White Columns, NYC, among others. His work has been featured in exhibitions at MoMA, NYC, and the Weatherspoon Art Museum, Greensboro, NC, and an upcoming group exhibition at Zolla Lieberman Gallery, Chicago, March 2022. Smith was awarded a Guggenheim Grant in 2013.
