Native New Yorker, Alix Smith (MFA in Photography and Related Media from the School of Visual Arts) has received international acclaim for her formal, yet surreal photography.  The works currently on view at the Museum of Biblical Art (December 14, 2006 – March 11, 2007) are from the series “Metaphorical Acts” which draws attention to the theatrical elements inherent to organized religion.  At once didactic and captivating, Smith's photographs highlight these stage-like settings to focus on the performative aspects of these fabricated displays and bring attention to the theatricality of the scene. 

 

Charlie Finch, senior critic for Artnet.com, writes on modern and contemporary art.  Finch is also co-author of Most Art Sucks: Five Years of Coagula (Smart Art Press).
