Past Lives
By Brighde Mullins
July 2, 2013

Amy Gerstler & Alexis Smith recently spoke about the art of collaboration at the Honor Fraser Gallery in Culver City. This installation is part of a larger exhibition, one that focuses on Portraiture. They re-mounted part of their show "Past Lives" which is a psychically charged stage set that creates the effect of a mythical classroom.

Amy Gerstler and Alexis Smith discuss the art of collaboration
By David L. Ulin
June 28, 2013

The week's best piece of intellectual theater took place Tuesday evening at the Honor Fraser Gallery, where poet Amy Gerstler and collage artist Alexis Smith discussed their longtime friendship and collaboration as part of Smith's new show "Slice of Life."

A conversation with Alexis Smith and Amy Gerstler

Please join Honor Fraser Gallery on Tuesday, June 25 at 6:30pm for a conversation about Past Lives with Alexis Smith and Amy Gerstler.

Past Lives, now on view at Honor Fraser Gallery, is a multimedia installation and poignant 1989 collaboration between Alexis Smith and writer Amy Gerstler. The installation will be the focus of a discussion about Smith's ability to hone the power and pathos of her materials (in this case, worn children's chairs and the visual markers of institutional indoctrination) and Gerstler's deft use poetry to imbue the objects with the aura of lives lived; fragments of text that stand-in for people and their stories.

Co-sponsored by the USC MPW program.

Art Review: Alexis Smith "Second Nature" at Craig Krull Gallery
By David Pagel
May 3, 2013

With the patience of a saint and a work ethic that's nothing if not old-school, the 64-year-old artist has gotten really good at what she does: stir wistful sentimentality and barbed discontent into a cocktail whose tastiness makes its kick all the more dangerous.
