Studio Art Professor Michael Smith Selected for 2017 Münster Sculpture Projects
Mon. January 23, 2017
Michael Smith, studio art professor at the Department of Art and Art History at The University of Texas at Austin has been selected for the fifth edition of the world-renowned Skulptur Projekte Münster (Münster Sculpture Projects) that takes place in Germany only once every 10 years.
Founded by Klaus Bussmann and Kasper König in 1977, Skulptur Projekte Münster features site-specific works that explore the relationship between art, public space and the urban environment. This year, Britta Peters and Marianne Wagner are curating the exhibition, expanding its reach into the nearby town of Marl and inviting both sculptural and performative approaches.
Included among more than 30 works, Smith’s contribution promises to remain rooted in his performance work. Smith intends to set up a fully operational tattoo studio for senior citizens.
