Alicia Smith

  • Alicia Smith is a Xicana artist and activist. Her work uses the abject and sublime to investigate ideas related to the tension between greed and reverence, and its impact on the environment and our relationship to the female body. Through the use of video, performance, printmaking, and sculpture, Smith seeks to dissolve romanticized tropes that deny indigenous women their complexity, while at the same time demonstrating their beauty and strength. Smith describes her artistic practice as a means of unpacking her complicated relationship with her mixed-race heritage, the land, and her body, which she does depicts through powerful visual imagery.
