Weekly Watchlist: Discover the Realms of the Unreal

Kiki Smith trusts her intuition

“Basically, I think art is just a way to think,” says Kiki Smith in our “Stories” episode. “It’s like standing in the wind and letting it pull you in whatever direction it wants to go.”

Adept in bronze, wax, textiles, and printmaking, Smith explores a diversity of narrative subjects including witches, saints, death, animals, family members, domestic objects, and dolls.
