Paul Anthony Smith, known for his signature printing techniques, will have work on view at Joslyn Art Museum starting on October 5th. Smith depicts images of the African diaspora through “picotages”, photos with stippled surfaces to create a new look. These images are transformed to highlight the obscurity of looking to a past that is marked by dislocation and loss of place. Smith’s exhibit explores ideas of place, memory and time across the diaspora.
