About The American Dream

Smith will transform The Brant Foundation into a temporary studio where he will spend thirty days producing new work for the forthcoming exhibition. This is an appropriate scenario for the artist, as his practice is largely visceral and spontaneous. In preparation for his show, Smith consulted Urs Fischer, the artist who previous exhibited at the foundation, and Julian Schnabel, who helped design the physical space, and has incorporated their input in his plans for the exhibition.
